Artists David Cheeseman and Ole Hagen collaborate with astrophysicist Roberto Trotta for week 20 at ﬁg-2. Their exhibition entitled ‘All There Was’ predicates a post-Newtonian orrery, concentrating on the depiction of the All-There-Is and its modelling. The exhibition builds its premises by looking into how we explore the cosmos – observationally and intellectually – and reflects on our understanding of it within the given parameters known to us. Basing its subject-matter on the dichotomy of presentation and the real, ‘All There Was’ is an aesthetic and intellectual speculation of post-Euclidean Geometry basing its forms on a reinterpretation of abstract concepts such as dark matter, dark energy. Cheeseman, Hagen and Trotta will highlight the transformation of ﬁg-2 premises into a temporary laboratory of ideas, through their performative conversation on Monday evening that will speculate about the ‘Big Picture’, the grand scheme of the reality we reside in.
Please join us for the weekly Curatorial Tour on Wednesday and the Last Chance Exhibition Tour on Sunday.
