Wexford Arts Centre and Wexford County Council present a two venue exhibition, What Is Life, bringing together a selection of local, national and international Irish artists working within the parameters of art and science. Consisting of a variety of media from Installation, photography and video the artworks seek to engage the viewer with concepts pertaining to the multiplicities of life and to consider; what is life?
The exhibition explores the potentials for cross disciplinary practice within art and science, what can art contribute to science and vice versa, how can the visual arts interpret discoveries in science. The works were chosen specifically for their use of scientific enquiry, playfulness and inventiveness both in their artistic production and concepts. Through their artworks questions around the ethics and care necessary for the future of life emerge.
The exhibition has been developed in order to link in with Trinity College Dublin’s major multidisciplinary symposium, to celebrate the 75 the Anniversary of Erwin Schrodinger’s “What Is Life” lecture series. This event reflects upon the great advancements in science since
Schrödinger’s lectures and focuses on the future of biology. Live lecture screenings and programmed talks will take place in Wexford Arts centre, for more information on screenings and talks at the Arts Centre please visit www.werxfordartscentre.ie
An exhibition talk will take place at the Wexford Arts Centre at 7pm on the launch night 20th July, where artist Meadhbh O’ Connor, Cliona O’ Farrely, Professor of Comparative Immunology at Trinity College Dublin, and curator Deirdre Southey will engage in conversation to tease out ideas surrounding the exhibition.
