Jacco Borggreve is a new media performance artist whose work focuses on technological mediation of the body, psychological self-engineering, making monsters and constructing contestable scenarios and futures. Borggreve adopts a radical self-exploitation in an effort to probe the improbable. In 2017 Borggreve implanted a device that broadcasted his GPS location on a website, living an open-source lifestyle for a period of eight months. In his most recent project, Borggreve hatched seven healthy dragon eggs using his body heat in an effort to resurrect a beloved pet, establish kinship and research interspecies parenthood. Borggreve holds a bachelor in Fine Art from AKI ArtEZ and is currently pursuing a Master’s Degree in Art Science at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague, Netherlands. His work has been shown in several countries in Europe, Central America and Asia.
