Co-curated by Prof. Mike Stubbs, director and CEO of FACT (Foundation for Art and Creative Technology), and Dr. Rob La Frenais, international independent curator, art is used in this exhibition to explore the grey areas at the limits of science and other controversial issues, with emphasis placed on trans-disciplinary collaborations with contemporary art and science. 

 

Artworks on view in No Such Thing As Gravity encompass different trans-disciplinary concepts and creative endeavours and while experimenting with scientific frameworks, the artists engage their artistic practice to raise questions and to respond to unknowns that have yet to be understood through science. They also employ cultural and philosophical concepts to explore the limits of human cognition and comprehension. No Such Thing As Gravity seeks to subvert preconceived notions that people may hold about science and challenges our understanding on the theory of gravity, with the essence of truth and belief examined throughout the process. From Newton to Einstein, physicists have yet to come to a consensus for the existence of gravity and this points to the fact the fact that scientific knowledge is not an eternal truth; it is a process of ceaseless overturning of previous knowledge and discovery. We will be able to step forward into a vast unknown world if we can open up structures of knowledge and expand on our ways of understanding; this is valid for both science and art.

 

This exhibition includes 11 artists/collectives from 6 countries, with the artworks on view resulting from exchanges and interactions with art and science and presenting the audience with a wide array of new ways of approaching art in an experimental scientific spirit. The exhibition presents the audience with an experience that combines sense and sensibility, aiming to bring to the audience inspiring new ways to understand art.
