EXHIBITIONS: SOFT SCIENCE – 2018 BLAKE ESTABLISHED ARTIST AWARD WINNER TRACEY CLEMENT
2 May 2020 - 5 Jul 2020 | 9.00am - 5.00pm
In Soft Science, when the domestic feminine act of knitting is made an integral part of a laboratory experiment, we are asked to acknowledge two truths: that women have always made a significant contribution to the supposedly masculine domain of science, and that the hard facts of science are not the only way to make sense of the world.
Soft Science highlights the fact that there is more than one way to skin Schrödinger’s cat. In a secular society we tend to look to the quantifiable facts of science for meaning. But art too is a way of understanding the world; a knowledge generating system which is different, but no less valid.
In Soft Science, when cold rational laboratory glass meets soft warm knitting, fuzzy logic is made manifest. In other words, there is no right answer in an experiment calculated to prove - if it proves anything at all- that much of the universe may be ultimately unknowable.
Join us for the exhibition launch event of Soft Science on Saturday 9 May (2-4pm).
