Ahmed Farooqui has created an immersive installation especially for the Espacio Gallery, where perspective is banished and the viewer is surrounded by a dark world of eerie, weightless entities that tremble on the edge of materiality. This is null-space, revealed by the stern gaze of science and recreated by the artist as space opera. There are characters and narratives here enough for many lifetimes.
Ahmed Farooqui is a sculptor and installation artist with an interest in turning the artistic gaze on scientific insights. Mysteries of the Organism" brings together a number of new large scale installations and sculptures that mark the artist's journey of discovery into the biological sciences.
