[ISEA2017] Artist Statement: Mary Maggic — Molecular Queering Agency

Artist Statement 

Our world is an alien landscape filled with toxicities. Thanks to petrochemical, agricultural, and pharmaceutical industries, we live in a toxic landscape that has been colonized by hormones.
These endocrine disrupting molecules are able to transfect change at the morphological level,
queering our bodies and bodies of non-human species. But there is no need for sex panic. The Molecular Queering Agency will guard you against the old notion of a stable body, extracting hormones from bodily fluids (urine) and ecological fluids (rivers). From xeno-forces arise xeno-solidarities, capable of collectively hacking the systems of hormonal colonization.
