Cosmic Dust

24 Jan 2015 - 17 May 2015

VISUAL presents Cosmic Dust, a group exhibition looking at attempts to orient ourselves in the universe that maintains us. Gathering the ideas of artists, scientists and philosophers, Cosmic Dust explores ways in which art, science and the spiritual can combine to offer a deeper understanding of the metaphysical nature of existence. From our connection to the natural world to our place in the stars, the exhibition delves into humanity’s poetic attempts to build systems of thought, meaning and belonging in the face of a vast and unknowable universe.

13 Feb 2015 - 21 Mar 2015

Wasteland will transform the gallery into a hypothetical place, an absurd playground overflowing with salvaged objects, postal packages, sculptures and debris. Nestled amidst its poetic surrounds the story of the artists’ attempts to dismantle and relocate a public park to a new location also unfolds. This exhibition explores the institutional rules and regulations that pervade our lives, and what happens when things slip through the cracks. Wasteland marks the first collaboration between Czech artists Eva Koťátková and Dominik Lang.
