Xavier Poultney (UK): Transient Objects

Ke Sklárně 3213/15, Praha MeetFactory

6. 3. - 30. 3. 2014 13:00

The exhibition Transient Objects by the emerging British artist Xavier Poultney is an investigation into the evolution of knowledge and the cultural ramifications of technology, inspired by a scientific endeavor called the SDSS. The Sloan Digital Sky Survey is a detailed three-dimensional digital mapping of the universe visible from its base in New Mexico. In Kostka Gallery, Poultney exhibits photographs and objects that investigate the progression of ideas from the local Native American Indian understanding of reality to the cutting edge present.

Curator: Karina Pfeiffer Kottová
