Rethinking matter: Biotic synthetic

May 19 - June 25, 2017
Godsbanen, Aarhus
 

Rethinking MATTER explores the stuff of art; the materials that shape what art can be and do. With this ongoing exhibition series, curators Pamela Grombacher, Nana Bendix Hansen, and Sasha Rose Richter investigate the material turn in contemporary art, asking, how can artistic matter trace our shifting relations with the physical world? 


The third edition of the Rethinking MATTER exhibition series asks: What happens when we pull organic materials into a built exhibition space? How do these materials respond to artificial processes? How do they change when confronted with man-made substances? And, how can synthetic materials challenge our perceptions of the natural and the unnatural?
