Margherita Pevere

Artist

Deeply fascinated by biological processes, Margherita Pevere is a visual artist and researcher investigating decay and transformation as the common destiny of human and non-human matter.

Her practice features a unique combination of organic and technological materials: she grows bacterial cultures, manipulates paper and photographic film, collects organic relics, captures ephemeral lights with digital video and plans to store a digitized collection of memories on bacterial genome.

Pevere holds a degree in Political Sciences and Arts and New Media and is now pursuing her PhD at Aalto University, School of Arts, Design at Architecture in Helsinki (FIN). In Berlin, she actively collaborates with the DIYbio group BioTinkering e.V.
