Recently, scientists have discovered that the rich source of stem cells in discarded body parts (such as bones from joint replacements, milk teeth and fat from liposuction can be used to regenerate tissues to repair. Wasted is a collection of artworks from artist Gina Czarnecki that explores the life-giving potential of ‘discarded’ body parts, as well as their relationship to myths, history, cutting-edge stem cell research and notions of what constitutes informed consent.
On Tuesday 30 October and Sunday 4 November (11.30am - 1.30pm) Gina will be in residence at MOSI, continuing to create a ‘palace’ made from real milk teeth.
We need your milk teeth to create the PALACE. Find out more by watching the video below or head to the Palaces website.
