Preview show 11-13 MAY – The Hague / NL
Think of a merger, an unexpected meeting, a new development.
All of these and more may happen where contexts clash and ideas collide. Thus it is with this preview of ArtScience graduates’ new work. It contains lifeforms, organic progressions, nature unbridled and nature harnessed. It contains the artificial, the manufactured, the machine. It takes elements from one and injects it into the other, tearing each apart to rebuild as another. Exchanging ideas, cannibalizing (them).
This clash, is of course not limited to art and science, it can occur everywhere, and makes for much confusion in understanding the world. But whereas in our environment so much is obscured by distance, confusion and the constant battle of everyday life, things may become clearer when seen at such close quarters, where elements that normally seem unconnected come together. It makes for a simplified version of the world, a version that still retains all of its complexity. Where each thing changes the context of the next, in endless permutations.
It is through such a clash of contexts that it becomes possible to see that despite everything, any one thing explains any other. For what is a clash, but violent meeting?
