Entangle / Physics and the Artistic Imagination

2018-11-16 - 2019-04-07

Black holes, dark matter, gravity, space, time and motion - these are phenomena that fascinate scientists and artists alike. Entangle / Physics and the Artistic Imagination is dedicated to works by contemporary artists and designers inspired by the science that reveals the fundamental forces that shape our world.

Participating artists are Julius von Bismarck (Germany), Julian Charrière (Switzerland), Sou Fujimoto (Japan), Iris van Herpen (Netherlands), Ryoji Ikeda (Japan, France), William Kentridge (South Africa), Rafael Lozano-Hemmer (Canada), Goshka Macuga (Poland, UK), Davide Quayola (Italy, UK), Solveig Settemsdal (Norway, UK), Sarah Sze (US), Keith Tyson (UK), Jorinde Voigt (Germany), and Carey Young (US, UK).

Entangle / Physics and the Artistic Imagination is produced by Bildmuseet and curated in collaboration with Ariane Koek, founder of the Arts at CERN programme at the European Organization for Nuclear Research. A number of the internationally recognised artists represented in the exhibition have participated in this programme, and some of the works have been created especially for the Bildmuseet exhibition.

Entangle is accompanied by a lecture series and an audio cloud where physicists and artists reflect on Matter, Light, Gravity, Time, and Space. An exhibition catalogue will be published during the spring, including texts by the physicist and best-selling author Carlo Rovelli, the art historian Gavin Parkinson, popular science writer Philip Ball, scientists, participating artists and curator Ariane Koek.
