Skin Wall and the Blushing

Genetic Moo are members of The London Group who are now celebrating their centenary year with a series of exhibitions and events. The first is at Pitzhanger Manor in Ealing which was the country residence of art collector and architect John Soane.  Painting, print, sculpture, video and site-specific installation works will be shown in the house and gallery.


We will be showing two works:  Skin Wall and The Blushing

The hand-painted Chinese-style wallpaper in the manor provided inspiration for us, encouraging musings on surface, ink, pattern and boundaries. The resulting works, Skin Wall and The Blushing, may be described as living wallpapers, one generative and the other interactive.

Skin Wall : A silky smooth expanse of fabric, its surface is an ambiguous pattern of randomly flexing human skin.

Sound design by Julia Schauerman

The Blushing : In the darkened wine-cellar, a small blue-green aquatic creature is calling to you. When you enter the space the creature comes closer, its scintillating surface patterned with discs mimicking the active chromatophores of squid skin. The colour of these pulsing discs is influenced by the by the colours it sees.  ..We recommend visitors wear colourful hats, scarves and coats!

The Blushing has been developed from our artwork Cockatoo
