MA Art and Science Class of 2021 present ‘Virtual Ground’

This year’s MA Art and Science graduates are presenting their work through both virtual and physical exhibitions and hosting a public online symposium.

‘VIRTUAL GROUND’ PHYSICAL EXHIBITION

The ‘Virtual Ground‘ physical exhibition will be at Asylum Chapel; a stunning grade two listed building and Safehouse 1 and 2; two charming abandoned Victorian houses in Peckham London, currently a hub for contemporary art. This new show brings together works of 20 interdisciplinary artists, who work and experiment at the intersection of art and science, researching a broad range of subjects from ecology to philosophy, neuroscience to spirituality, light to perception, biotechnology to feminism… and more. Scientific theories and perspectives relevant to our times are critiqued through a diverse range of media including painting, performance, video, print, new media, sound, montage, sculpture, installation and virtual reality.

Virtual Ground‘ grew from a need for a paradigm shift; to blossom new ideas and ways of thinking beyond the binary, beyond the institution, beyond our inherited reality and into new worlds.

‘VIRTUAL GROUND’ PHYSICAL EXHIBITION (following Covid19 social distancing regulations).

MAAS Open Studio 2021

SEE YOU TOMORROW – Open Studio

21st January 2021 – 21st February 2021

Open Studio will open here on the 21st of January

 

This year MA Art and Science students are mostly working from their home-studios. With tighter studio spaces they collaborate with co-habiting species, work with diverse responsive matter and make experiments in their living spaces.

Giving full attention to their surroundings, each student’s work develops to explore variations of possible futures.

SEE YOU TOMORROW invites you to see how artists make work by combining their creative practice with scientific research and what happens in the process.

The map navigates you to public places frequented by artists on the course. If you happen to be in the area close to their dot on the map, then follow directions to find an object temporarily placed by the artist, for you to see and use as a QR Code portal to their virtual studio. If these locations are local to you* then please try visiting these places physically to have an embodied experience of each and every spot chosen for you by the artists, and then share your moments with us using #SeeYouTomorrow #MAAS21 #artandscience
