Portraits of My Life as a Bird

Cristina Guitian's exhibition "Portraits of My Life as a Bird" is showing until the 30th March at the Print House Gallery in London so drop in and take a look!

‘Portraits of My Life as a Bird explores the nature and aesthetics of the hybrid. Throughout history, mythical hybrids such as the chimera were used to describe fantastic yet vulnerable power. Courtesy of rapid advances in genetic manipulation, humanity is now on the verge of holding such power. Liberated from biology and ethical oversight, ‘Portraits of My Life as a Bird’ is a playful imagining of this genetically mutated future.'
