About this item
Artists who share a fascination with science create works that are neither illustrative of scientific principles nor concerned with presenting arguments toward any particular issue in theoretical physics. Instead, they attempt to elucidate the inconceivable through the exploration of voids and infinities. Paradoxes and conundrums are often at the root of these explorations, from humorous and playful to serious and speculative. Using a wide range of approaches these artists examine the edges of human perception in ways that embrace systematic approaches, resulting in sculptures, installations, photographs and drawings that illuminate connections which are usually imperceptible. The artists: Adam David Brown, Jessica Eaton, Karilee Fuglem,Marla Hlady, Richard Sewell, Charles Stankievech. Dan Adler teaches in the art history department at York University (Toronto), and was senior editor of the Bibliography of the History of Art at the Getty Research Institute. He is the author of Hanne Darboven: Cultural History 1880–1983 (MIT Press). Shannon Anderson is an independent curator and writer and a regular contributor to Art Papers, Azure, C magazine, Carousel and Canadian Art.
