Description
Infected is a projected video installation about the nature of the physical body in the context of future technological possibilities, seen through dance and digitally manipulated imagery. The new bio-engineered body is still a sexual, stark, brutal, organic, pounding bloody system with ripping tendons. It is beautiful and repulsive, indulgent, curious, emotional, un/controlled, breeding, changing.

Gina Czarnecki is an artist originating from the UK whose films and installations have been exhibited widely across the UK and around the world. Infected continues her work around the visceral, biological and emotive body and its politics in relation to new technologies.

This video is made in collaboration with Iona Kewney, a Glasgow-based dance artist. It features a specially commissioned score by Fennesz, whose computer-manipulations of sounds derived from guitar and other acoustic sources have won him worldwide acclaim as one of the most innovative and important artists working in electronic music.
