Inspired by the notion of interaction used in particle physics HARBINGER II: SUBTLE COLLISIONS is an exhibition focusing on common grounds between art and science. Rather than presenting metaphors of such an encounter, it departs from the observation that both fields use notions of prediction and intuition as tools.
HARBINGER II: SUBTLE COLLISIONS is a show about matter and the universe, about energy, light, gravity and time, about circles, black holes and space, and how particles and ideas collide. It combines new works of artistic researchers affiliated with KASK & Conservatorium, developed after a visit to the CERN facilities in Geneva, with works by other artists selected by the postgraduate students of Curatorial Studies.
With works by:
Maria Boto & Kristel Peters - Color Biolab
Michiel De Cleene
Ives Maes (HISK laureate 2001)
Other Women’s flowers
Todèl (Delphine Wibaux & Tom Rider)
Chantal van Rijt
Atena Abrahimia - Johannes de Bruycker - Chris Dupuis - Lotte Egtberts - Peter Lemmens - Monica Ruiz Loyola - Elisa Maupas - Laila Melchior - Lucie Ménard - Anna Stoppa - Mobina Tabar - Nasrin Tork - Gabriela Torres - Michiel Van Damme - Astrid Vereycken - Lenny Vervaeke
Opening: Friday 5 July, 5–10pm
Exhibition: 6–17 July, 9am–6pm
Late nights on 6 & 12 July, until 10pm
In the context of the EPS-HEP particle physics conference to be held in Ghent this summer, KASK’s 2018-19 Curatorial Studies designed a series of events drawing closer lines between art and science in partnership with art@CMS, a program developed within one of the large experiments at the CERN Large Hadron Collider in Geneva. A lecture cycle, a film programme, an exhibition and a publication, Harbinger is an inquiry on some of the aspects that simultaneously approximate and distinguish the fields and practices in art and science.
