Listening to Trees: Olga Kisseleva, Between Art and Science
16.12.2019 - 26.05.2020
The encounter between Art and Science, which is evident in this exhibition, may surprise, even though this pairing is not so new. In times past, artists helped scientists to illustrate their findings in anatomy and botany with drawings and paintings. However, rapid developments in the arts and the sciences brought about a perception of opposition, and even rivalry, between them. Changes in science and technology in recent decades created opportunities for new encounters. Artists turn more and more toward computers, telecommunications and new media, artificial intelligence and virtual reality, and research, while scientists and technology specialists embrace historical, cultural, and social knowledge. As we study Olga Kisseleva's works we realize that they are the products of collaborations with experts in many fields of knowledge.
