Bio-Performance – Bio-Installation
by Marcello Mercado

In 2007 I made a double intervention in the Documenta Kassel:
1) I took red poppies from the art work of Sanja Ivekovic: "Poppy Field" and
I have extracted the DNA from them.
A month later, 2) I have disolved the frozen DNA in water where were living
water-worms (Biomphalaria glabrata).
I have transmitted through Baby- calls their own genoma.
