Lyndsey Walsh is an American artist, writer, and researcher based in Berlin, DE. Lyndsey has a Bachelor’s in Individualized Studies from New York University and a Master’s in Biological Arts with Distinction from SymbioticA Centre of Excellence in Biological Arts at the University of Western Australia. Lyndsey is enthralled by the ruptures in the corporeality of culture caused by technology. They are also fixated on the creatures that are born from these ruptures, as they embody both collective cultural fears and technologically mediated desires.

Lyndsey’s practice employs queer and intersectional feminist frameworks to question the tensions that can exist surrounding these creatures whose very existence resists cultural and anthropocentric binaries of human-non-human, diseased-healthy, and life-machine. Currently, Lyndsey is a visiting scholar and researcher with the Department of Experimental Biophysics at Humboldt Universität zu Berlin, and they guest lecture at various institutions and universities. Their work has been exhibited globally and featured in art events and with institutions such as Frieze Art Week New York, the Humboldt Forum, the Ural Biennial, the Berlin Biennale, Transmediale/CTM, and more.

SELF-CARE


PHOTO DOCUMENTATION BY: Milla Millasnoore, Asya Kaplan, and Genietta Varsi. PHOTOGRAPHY OF SELF-CARE BY: Pavlina Belokrenitskaya

2021-2022
SELF-CARE confronts the inheritance of bodily trauma and the impact of the medical gaze and medical surveillance on the so-called “female body”. Embedded in personal narrative and bodily exploration, the work seeks to question bodily identities associated with disease, gender, and care. Self-Care sets out to queer these notions by rearticulating bodily relationships and the horrors associated with bodily potentials in the face of genetic-based disease diagnostics and familial histories of cancer.

The works feature a queer wearable device, as a chest binder, that allows its wearer to house and care for a living BRCA1 cancer cell line, accompanying media about the wearable device, and two videos, one of them exploring the artists’ relationship with their mother and inherited genetic mutations in the context of the US healthcare system.

In the site-specific Finnish installation of the work, Self-Care included an interview with Finnish genetic health expert Kristiina Aittomäki.

SELF-CARE is based on the research project titled “Prophylaxis” done during Art.ITMO.Residency at the Art & Science Centre at ITMO University in 2021. 

SELF-CARE has been commissioned by the Bioart Society for m/other becomings and was part of the m/other becomings exhibition i in May of 2022 in Helsinki, FI. m/other becomings is a collaboration between Laboratory for Aesthetics and Ecology (DK), The Association for Arts and Mental Health (DK), Kultivator (SE), Art Lab Gnesta (SE), and Bioart Society (FI).

The work is currently on display at Art Laboratory Berlin for Matter of Flux
