Scientists and artists may appear to make strange bedfellows, but the ethical questions and societal ramifications raised by tissue culture technology, cybernetics and genetics make it ripe for artistic exploration. The group show "Corpus Extremus (LIFE+)", opening this Saturday at Exit Art, exhibits works from artists who collaborate with scientists and have hands on experience with biology, an interdisciplinary approach that curator Boryana Rossa explains, has been growing in the last decade.
