A groundbreaking exhibition on the uncertain limits between art and science, sk-interfaces explores, materially and metaphorically, the concept of skin as a technological interface. This multi-disciplinary exhibition launches FACT’s Human Futures programme.

Designer hymens by artist Julia Reodica, a coat made of blended skin cultures by legendary French artist ORLAN, Jun Takita’s model brain infused with glowing moss, and biotechnological ‘leather’ growing in the galleries by the Tissue Culture & Art Project, are some of the projects that reflect the curatorial concept of Jens Hauser in an approach involving science, politics, philosophy and architecture with its social implications.

“What used to be understood as a surface that represents the limit of the self and between the inside and the outside can today be seen as an unstable border. sk-interfaces is ideally placed within the cultural programme of Liverpool 08,”
says curator Jens Hauser.
