In humans, intergenic regions are stretches of DNA sequences between genes, comprising about 75% of the genome. Historically, intergenic regions have been called junk DNA, suggesting that they have no function. However, it is now thought they may contain as-yet unidentified genes.
INTERGENIC explores the power, fallibility and obsolescence latent within the in-betweens. Using diverse media, the selected artists disclose the potency of all our known unknowns.
