Anna Dumitriu

UK, 1969

Anna Dumitriu (1969) is a British artist who works with sculpture, installation, craft and biological media to explore our relationship to infectious diseases, synthetic biology and robotics. She has a strong international exhibition profile, having exhibited at The Picasso Museum in Barcelona, ZKM, BOZAR, Ars Electronica, The Science Gallery Dublin, The Museum of Contemporary Art Taipei, Ars Electronica, The Museum of the History of Science in Oxford, and The V & A Museum. Her work is held in several major public collections, including the Science Museum London and Eden Project.

She works deeply embedded in science settings and holds visiting research fellowships at the University of Hertfordshire, Brighton and Sussex Medical School, and Waag Society. She is artist-in-residence with the Modernising Medical Microbiology Project at the University of Oxford, and with the National Culture Type Collection at Public Health England.
She has worked with the Liu Laboratory for Synthetic Evolution at The University of California in Irvine (USA) to explore synthetic biology and the resulting artworks were featured in the ground-breaking exhibition “WETWARE” at the Beall Center for Art and Technology in Irvine (USA) curated by Jens Hauser and David Familian. Recently she has been working with the MRG-Grammar project to create artworks using CRISPR gene editing technology and collaborating with BeyondSeq at the University of Birmingham to explore the biochemistry of DNA.

She was lead artist on the Creative Europe supported project Trust Me, I’m an Artist which investigates the novel ethical problems that arise when artists create artwork in laboratory settings. Her book of the same name, co-authored with Professor Bobbie Farsides, was published in 2014. Her work is featured in William Myers book “Bio Art: Altered Realities” published by Thames and Hudson in 2016 amongst many other significant publications.
