Paula Pin

Paula Pin Artist

A researcher, artist, and activist, she has a strong inclination for experimental processes with collective and free technologies. Her work spans from drawing to abstract video, from circuit bending to performance and lab experiments, always located at the intersection where biology, science, and queer art collide. 

She has participated in the independent trans-hack-feminist laboratories Pechblenda and Transnoise, and has collaborated in the extensive bio-hacking network, Hackteria, since 2012. Her practical experience in bio-hacking (body/environment) and health in the Pechblenda laboratory gave way to Biotranslab, an autonomous lab on wheels for experiments and investigations on Open Science Friction and queer natures on the road. The lab is set inside a bus, the CyanoVan. The lab is now on wheels running participatory workshops and promoting biohacking as critical sites for knowledge production and collaborative queerings of the status quo.

She has been a resident artist at institutions such Université Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris; School of Arts (KASK), Ghent; Hangar, Barcelona; and Gaité Lyrique Paris, and has participated in Querly Ecologies at Click Festival, Denmark and OSH Open Source Gathering, Shenzhen, China between others.
