Jenna Sutela and Aslak Aamot Helm share an interest in the more-than-conceptual questions produced by scientific research. Both of their work is interdisciplinary in nature. They deal with holisms, such as holobionts, or how the human body and psyche are interconnected with other lifeforms.

In the podcast, they talk about their exchange as part of Milky Ways, a collaborative video between Sutela and Primer, a platform for artistic and organizational development that Helm runs together with a group of artists and researchers in Denmark.

Moderation: Christina Landbrecht

The Speakers 

Jenna Sutela (b. 1983, Turku, Finland) works with living organisms such as bacteria and slime mold as well as with sound and language. In her audiovisual works, sculptures, and performances, the artist creates connections between biological entities and technologies. Her particular interest is in the productive interaction between human and non-human organisms. In her work “nimiia cétii,” for example, she created a novel written language whose machine-generated characters are based on capturing and copying the movements of Bacillus subtilis nattō. In 2019/20, Sutela was a visiting artist at the MIT Center for Art, Science & Technology. Sutela’s works have been shown at Castello di Rivoli (2022), Liverpool Biennial (2021), Kunsthall Trondheim (2020), ZKM Karlsruhe (2020), Serpentine Galleries (2019), Kiasma, Helsinki (2017), and others.

Aslak Aamot Helm works on building alliances, experiments and organizations across art, science, technology and industry. He is the co-founder of Diakron, a studio for transdisciplinary research and practice, and Primer, a platform for artistic and organizational development housed in the global water- and biotechnology company Aquaporin.

As a part of the editorial team working on the Future Art Ecosystems report series with Serpentine Galleries, he works on cross-sectorial research on emerging art-institutional formations. Aslak is currently a postdoctoral researcher with Medical Museion, Diakron and Serpentine Galleries.

In the project titled “Re-energizing art institutions at the intersection of art, science and technology” he is working to study and further para-organizational missions and strategies across a diverse selection of transdisciplinary art organizations and practices.
