Koen Vanmechelen - Genus XY

Koen Vanmechelen - Genus XY

‘Genus XY’ refers to the process where the natural is combined with the artificial, and the intentional combined with chance. The creator - the artist - observes and inspires his creation. The thermometer measures the temperature of the egg, that is about to hatch and which could also be seen as a metaphor for the cosmos bursting with potential. ‘Genus XY’ (of the same name as Koen Vanmechelen's (°1965, B) first solo exhibition in Z33 in 2004) also refers to the duality that permeates all biological life. XY does not stand for the male as expected, but it is a contamination of male (Y) and female (X).
