'Xy' van Martin Borchert (2009)

Tuin UMCG (A. Deusinglaan-Oostersingel)

The X-chromosome and Y-chromosome have come to represent genetic research into the fundamental building blocks of man. The more we know about chromosomes, the better the diagnosis and the better able we are to prevent and treat disease. However, increasing understanding can also lead to ethically dubious applications. The Anniversary illustration Xy depicts the artist’s ambivalent attitude towards genetic research – the relationship between the two figures is open to interpretation.
