Exlusively for members

The Austrian artist Thomas Feuerstein (born 1968 in Innsbruck, AT) moves in the area between art and science. His exhibition PSYCHOPROSA at the Frankfurter Kunstverein consists of a single, interconnected installation that serves to produce the molecule PSILAMINE and the production of mucus. The exhibition space becomes a living laboratory in which the artist extracts the newly synthesized PSILAMINE from algae and fungi and declares it a molecular sculpture. In his exhibition Thomas Feuerstein interweaves knowledge from art, philosophy, literature as well as from biotechnology, economics and politics into an artistic narrative that opens up questions about existential basic parameters and the origin of life.
The work PSILOVE (Edition) shows the structure of the molecule PSILAMINE, in whose atoms a section of the literary oeuvre of science fiction author Howard Phillips Lovecraft (1890-1937) is spirally inscribed. In Lovecraft’s horror stories, slime, semi-liquid or other gelatinous substances are recurring motifs.
