Dieneke Jansen:
The Validity of a Natural Body

Dieneke Jansen: The Validity of a Natural Body, 2005 (installation view).


Artist’s statement -

It has become increasingly irrelevant to concern ourselves with the concept of a natural body; the natural body has become an out-dated concept.

Biotechnology has allowed us to upgrade the properties of the human subject, to correct the pathological and also to augment the desirable. Technology has irreversibly empowered the individual to go beyond the natural. However, biotechnology can also be used as a mechanism for uniformity, normalising and idealising, which can be seen as a part of today’s body tyranny.
