Bios

Bojana Ginn

Bojana Ginn is an interdisciplinary artist and a former MD and scientist. Her work explores contemporary existence in the age of digital and biotech: interactions between body, nature and technology. Her large scale site-specific installations are built with organic fiber, digital video projections, and LEDs. “I see my works as microscopic places being magnified, both tactile and virtual. Reflective and speculative, they are playgrounds for questions about the now and future of body and environment, transhumanism, and biotechnology.” Born in Serbia, Yugoslavia in 1974, Ginn graduated from Medical School in Belgrade, Serbia in 2001, and completed a Masters in Fine Art in Sculpture at SCAD Atlanta in 2013. Bojana is the recipient of the 2018 Ellsworth Kelly Award and a finalist for the 2019 Burke Prize, at The Museum of Arts and Design, NY. She is a winner of a 2018 Working Artist Project at The Museum of Contemporary Art of GA, and her video work was exhibited at the 2016 Venice Architectural Biennale. Ginn has collaborated with NASA and Emory University. She was a speaker and a featured artist for BEINGS 2015: International Conference on Ethics in Bioengineering. Selected a finalist for a 2015 World Technology Award in Art, Ginn serves as a fellow at the organization. Her works are held in the collections of The MOCA GA, Cyber Center of Augusta University, and numerous private collections. She lives in Decatur, GA, with her son and husband, with whom she shares a 2014 Tanne Foundation Award.

LYNX

LYNX was born in Dong Thap, Vietnam in 1985. LYNX and his family moved to the United States in 1993 to escape persecution from the communist regime. As a young boy growing up in the Communist Country of Vietnam, LYNX experienced fear and hardship, and one way to find mental comfort was to take refuge in the teaching of the Enlightened Saints. LYNX graduated from Georgia State University in 2011 with a BFA in Studio Art with an interest in Eastern philosophy and religion. In 2016, LYNX earned his MFA in Painting from Savannah College of Art and Design, which he focuses most of his effort on drawing, especially marks making, as a tool for self-discipline.
