Louise Mackenzie is a UK based artist creating installation, sculpture, performance, sound and film works. With a focus on living material, she is interested in the relationships between medium, sound, image and text, attempting to find ways in which these can be connected to produce unexpected results.

Her installation, The Stars Beneath Our Feet, originally commissioned by Artichoke for Lumiere Durham 2015, has since shown in Edinburgh and Shanghai. Louise received the New Graduate Award at Synthesis, Manchester Science Festival, 2013 and was a finalist in the international Bio Art & Design Awards, 2015. Louise is a PhD candidate with the BxNU Institute of Contemporary Art and member of the Cultural Negotiations of Science research group where she explores the agency of the organism through fine art practice.

The works in this show explore themes of vitality through Louise’s research in biotechnology and our relationship with the microbiological.
