La ciencia avanza pero yo no (Science Advances But I Do Not), is an on-going collection of various works involving performance, photographic documents and sculpture. Angel Lartigue is a native Houston artist investigating the relationship between the consumption of Science, communication and distribution of its methodologies through in which the ways they constrict and oppose the human body.
Concerned with rapid advancements of modern scientific technologies, Lartigue creates interactive installations that transform the space into religious-like environments of ritualism often taking visual references from the history of popular Science, Art and Religion.
The exhibition includes the Sub Scientist Booth, where participants are able to extract and swap raw DNA substances with each other via saliva cells through a 5-minute process using only household materials like salt and water.
Lartigue is currently an artist-in-residence at Box13 Artspace.
