MA Fine Art
Enzyme Magazine – A Collaboration with Liverpool Biennial
A collaboration between MA fine art students Cos Ahmet, Abbie Bradshaw and Linda Jane James and artists Jorgge Menna Barreto and Joélson Buggilla, for Liverpool Biennial 2021.
Thinking of the periodical as part of an intellectual work of digestion, artists Jorgge Menna Barreto and Joelson Buggilla proposed Enzyme magazine for their Liverpool Biennial project, artists Cos Ahmet, Abbie Bradshaw and Linda Jane James and curator Sarah Kristin Happersberger, to collaborate on Enzyme #2: the Life Systems issue.
Each worked on a biome relating to the theme of systems – bodily, environmental and social. ‘Life Systems’ became a meeting point to connect their practices, share ideas, harvest and feed. Each artist produced a section of the magazine, and translated their contribution into a two-hour online Life Systems public event.
