Keto Logua Bisexual and Radially Symmetric, 2018/2020 Alumid 20 × 20 × 11 cm Photography by Gunter Lepkowski
Logua uses sculpture, film and installation to undermine assumed boundaries between the objective and subjective, fact and fiction, the scientific and artistic, examining the inherent anthropocentric projection that lies within structures of scientific practice. Using a research based and collaborative process, her work denounces an individually expressive authorship while simultaneously centering the inexorably personal nature of searches for the ideal. In her work Bisexual and radially symmetric (2018/2020) Logua worked with findings from the eFlower project to create a 3D print of the earliest flower. With a team of botanical experts and vast statistical data, the project looked at over 800 species of flowers to create a feasible image of this ancient floral ancestor. The work is itself undeniably fantastical, a literal imagination of an alternate space and time, yet arrived at through what are considered to be objective means.
