Ce Quimera

Quimera Rosa [Pink Chimera] is a nomadic lab that researches and experiments on body, technoscience and identities . Their aim is to develop practices able to produce non-natural cyborg identities from a transdisciplinary perspective. They assume Donna Haraway’s notion of cyborg, that defines it as: “chimeras, theorized and fabricated hybrids of machine and organism.” Their work is based on the deconstruction of sex and gender identities as well as in the interaction body/machine/environment. Their performances present hybrid beings, chimeras, where the production of the subjectivity is the result of a prosthetic incorporation. Aware by transfeminist and postidentitary discourses, they make bodies a platform for public intervention, breaking up limits between public and private. They understand sexuality as a technological and artistic creation and seek to experiment hybrid, flexible and changing identities able to blur frontiers between natural/artificial, normal/abnormal, male/female, hetero/homo, human/animal, animal/plant, art/politics, art/science, reality/fiction…

Particularly interested in the articulation between art, science and technology and their functions in the production of subjectivities, they work is currently focused on the creation of transdisciplinary projects and performances, the elaboration of electronic devices that work with body practices, and bio-hacking experiments. They complement this artistic activity by giving numerous workshops, as well as a curatorial and production work based on the constitution and feeding of networks.

Most of their work is done in a collaborative manner and always free of patents and proprietary codes. It has been presented in streets, contemporary art centers, bars, galleries, universities, concert halls, colleges, discos, museums, squats, festivals and national scenes.
