Lacoste Grey Polo
Artist Gina Czarnecki creates work from human resources
"Tony is coming to open Lacoste Grey Polo the official launch of Wasted in Coventry when he is well enough.
The exhibition looks at the life giving potential of discarded body parts, stem cell research, taboos and what constitutes informed consent.
"YOU'RE weird, you collect fat?"
"The original idea was to collect 12,000 teeth and for them to be spilling over like barnacles or coral formations. So far we have collected around 1,200.
"Nothing this complex has ever been made in crystal resin. So it was a difficult process to make.
This is what sculptor Gina Czarnecki's 10 year old daughter Lola said, when she discovered her mother was filling re upholstered Art Deco chairs with human fat extracted by liposuction.
The shape of Palace was influenced by various landscapes, rock formations and landmarks Gina has visited.
landscapes. We met at the arts space, Metal, during Liverpool Biennial. When he heard what I was doing he said: 'you can have my hip bone'."

truth is the tooth fairy real?' As a parent you don't know how to answer that. That's what inspired it.
Gina who has two daughters, Lola, aged 10, and Saskia, aged 12 says: "When she was seven years old my eldest daughter came home and said: 'Tell me the Lacoste Polo Shirts Mens
"When it is lit up Palaces looks amazing. It looks like ice and is designed to be touched. My husband is totally paranoid about teeth he cannot touch them."
When she came up with the idea for Wasted, scientists had just discovered discarded body parts, such as bones from joint replacements, umbilical cords, milk teeth and fat from liposuction were a rich source of stem cells. Gina collaborated with stem cell biologist, Professor Sara Rankin at Imperial Embroidered Polo Shirts No Minimum
"Sara and I had a competition to see who could get the most milk teeth between Liverpool and London, Coventry is coming up as a close third.
"Sara has mixed race children and knew they were not represented as 90 per cent of donations were Caucasian. There has since been a big attempt to get a bigger mix and donations from different communities."
"There is an abundance of human material that, with donor consent, could be used for research, or other purposes, but it is currently 'wasted'. Why?"
"The transition between our understandings of what's 'magical' and what's true starts abruptly when we lose our milk teeth.
Wasted, the artist's new exhibition at The Herbert, Coventry, includes inter related sculptures made from children's milk teeth, discarded human bones, dental casts and human fat.
British artist Gina, who moved to Liverpool from Australia six years ago, says: "The Stem Cell Bank in the UK was 10 years behind the rest of Europe when we started.

"The Wasted works has become a journey into the grey areas of UK ethics and the process of obtaining informed consent for the use of tissue.
"We've had some beautiful drawings and we will put them up on the website. Today we had teeth sent from children in Greece and Canada.
"Children send us handwritten stories and pictures about how they lost their teeth. One little girl wrote: 'I told my granddad my tooth was loose. He said 'which one?' and pulled it out'.
Children from across the world have helped to make the sculpture by donating their milk teeth.

"We are enthralled and repulsed by human tissue, living and dead. The presence in artworks of human matter from living patients is physiologically and psychologically intense," the 47 year old explains.
The scientist and artist realised that they had much in common they were both from similar working class backgrounds, the same age with children of a similar age, who had recently lost milk teeth for the first time.
"One spiral reminded me of Cologne Cathedral. Another looks like a rock formation we saw jutting out of the sea in Thailand on the way back to the UK from Australia," she says.
She said: "I am going to pick it up next week. I have filmed Tony giving his consent in a video to show the hospital. I am going to set the hip socket in a ball of resin and display it the exhibition at The Herbert. Lancaster University is cleaning the bone for me.
One of her living, consenting donors is Liverpool artist Tony Garner, who had a hip replacement last Monday. He has given consent for his hip ball and socket to be donated to Gina.
Gina Czarnecki is the first artist to explore the medical ethics of exhibiting human bone, tissue, fat and milk teeth from living, consenting donors as art. She talks to Catherine Vonledebur about her Midland exhibition, inspired by her father, who survived a concentration camp in Nazi occupied Poland.
