About

With the advent of modern art, chance became the creative 'spark' which excites artistic imagination and causes non-predictable but feasible material results; a practice that left chance a continuous paradox. This exhibition approaches chance as 1. a definable beginning 2. furthered by repetition, consolidated in 3. continuity which unfolds against the backdrop of spontaneity in continuous interaction with the world. In this sense, we refer to Charles Sanders Peirce’s notion of Tychism; rather than postulating the importance of determinism in cosmology and in socio-economic Darwinism Peirce claimed that the origin of species is triggered by evolutionary love or 'agapeism', when one entity is prepared to sacrifice its own perfection for the sake of the wellbeing of another.

The exhibition brings together photography (Eva Vuillemin), performative sculpture (Rike Horb) and a sound installation (Matthias Krieg). The exhibition will be accompanied by a screening of Krzysztof Kieślowski’s movie Przypadek (Blind Chance) and lectures on chance as understood by philosophy and physics.
