Presented by ISEA2013, SymbioticA, SymbioticA and the Powerhouse Museum, Semipermeable (+) looks at the membrane as a site, metaphor and platform for a series of artistic interventions and projects, some commissioned specifically for the exhibition and others selected from the many projects developed at SymbioticA since 2000.

Curator Oron Catts brings together 14 artists from different disciplines to present, culturally articulate and re-visit, metaphorically and actually, the notion of the membrane – from Protocells, infection and DNA through skins and garments to borders and state control.


Guy Ben-Ary and Kirsten Hudson, Andre Brodyk, Oron Catts, Ionat Zurr and Corrie van Sice, Tagny Duff, Benjamin Forster, Sam Fox, Donna Franklin, Verena Friedrich, Nigel Helyer, Cat Hope, Svenja Kratz, Tissue Culture and Art Project
