Working in the kitchen, Lindsay Kelley’s art practice and scholarship explore how the experience of eating changes when technologies are being eaten. Her first book is Bioart Kitchen: Art, Feminism and Technoscience (London: IB Tauris, 2016). Bioart Kitchen emerges from her work at the University of California Santa Cruz (Ph.D in the History of Consciousness and MFA in Digital Art and New Media). Kelley is a lecturer at UNSW Sydney in the faculty of Art & Design as well as Honorary Research Fellow, Department of Gender and Cultural Studies, the School of Philosophical and Historical Enquiry, the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, in association with Sydney Environment Institute, the University of Sydney. She is the recipient of an Australian Research Council Discovery Early Career Researcher Award.
My practice asks what kinds of knowledge we make in the kitchen. I activate kitchen spaces with sculptures and performances that consider how food, taste, and eating relate to broader questions about history, technoscience, and the body.
