The Art of Deception

Isaac Monté and Toby Kiers

Humans use deception to achieve perfection in society, art and science. Reacting to this through art, we take discarded pig hearts and transform them into elegant vessels for new life by decellularizing them and re-populating them with various techniques, into new fully functional and aesthetically improved hearts for humans.
We aim to explore how biological interventions and aesthetic manipulation can be used as tools for the ultimate deception: the transformation of inner beauty, from grotesque to perfect.
