Portrait of Dr Margherita Pevere

Dr Margherita Pevere is an internationally acknowledged artist and researcher working across biological arts and performance with a distinctive visceral signature. Her inquiry hybridizes biotechnology, ecology, queer and death studies to create arresting installations and performances that trail today’s ecological complexity. Her body of work is a blooming garden crawling with genetically edited bacteria, cells, sex hormones, microbial biofilm, blood, slugs, ash and decomposing remains. With Marco Donnarumma and Andrea Familari, she co-founded the perormance group Fronte Vacuo. She is member of the Finnish Bioart Society and The Queer Death Studies Network and recently co-curated the show Membranes Out Of Order in Berlin.
