"...Genetic engineering using the so-called LentiCRISPR/CAS9 system, a microbial adaptive immune system that creates double-stranded breaks in target DNA at precise positions, usually eliminating invading viruses in the bacteria, has become a tool with potentially vast possibilities of application in human, sparking a new wave of debates in bioethics. Here the the scissors of gene engineering, are transposed from biology to art, a cutting tool that points towards the artist’s own methodological approach. The vertical strips of N° 7659 are cut-outs of an image, placed against the wall so that they form a distorted portrait photograph of one of Lebzelter’s research subjects. Some pieces of this installation are cuts from the original photo, some from its inverted copy dealing with the duality of the actual gesture of cutting and the tool or mechanism for doing so (‘the scissors’) as its apparent result, point- ing towards the artist’s methodology and specificity of her artistic practice..."
