With his new show Zachary Beer explores the ‘Homeobox Domain' in DNA. Through a variety of media the artist interprets the action of the homeobox domain liking it to ‘the conductor of an orchestra', telling guiding the genes in their behaviour. Beer's collages combine crystals, oils, veneer, copper sheet and other unexpected materials, play with the phenomenon of the homeobox control describing the complex flora and fauna that are possible and that can be built chronologically. Zachary Beer's work explores Molecular Biology and focuses on the interpretation of phenomena at these biological scales.
