PEDRO NEVES MARQUES : IT BITES BACK
Apr 11 - Jun 16, 2019
It Bites Back features new and existing works based on a laboratory in São Paulo that breeds genetically-engineered mosquitoes. Transgenic male mosquitoes are designed to reduce the insect’s population by passing a lethal gene on to their offspring when released into the wild.
 
Ranging from analogue film to sound installation, digital animation and poetry, Neves Marques’ exhibition interrogates the laboratory as a place that defines the biopolitics of the 21st Century.

Sep 19 - Dec 15, 2019
Gasworks presents the first institutional solo exhibition by London-based artist Kudzanai-Violet Hwami. Born in Zimbabwe, Hwami left her homeland at the age of nine amidst political turmoil. Drawing on personal experiences of geographical dislocation and displacement, her intensely pigmented paintings combine visual fragments from a myriad of sources, including images found online and haunting family photographs, as a way to collapse past and present into bold afro-futuristic visions.
