Gina Czarnecki

Gina Czarnecki's work fuses media, film and visual art, reflecting on the relationship between the human body and new technologies.

Developed in collaboration with biotechnologists, computer programmers, dancers and sound artists, Czarnecki’s films and installations look at human relationships between image, disease, evolution, genetic research and film technology.

‘Spintex’, filmed in the Ashanti region of Ghana by Czarnecki and Langheinrich, looks at the daily rhythm of life and death that occurs in the environment. ‘Nascent’ is a visual and visceral journey about life, while ‘Infected’ is about the relationship between the physical body and the technology of the future.

The screenings will be followed by a talk by Gina Czarnecki and Atau Tanaka, chair of Digital Media at Newcastle University. There will also be a drinks reception.
