Naturdinge - Formen zwischen Kunst und Wissen
„Sobald die Naturdinge vom Menschen erfasst werden, bewegen sie sich grenzüberschreitend in der Trennzone zwischen Naturgebilde und Kunstwerk.“ (Horst Bredekamp)
Natural history has paved numerous paths and branches into the visual arts. In her multimedia exhibition, artist and encyclopaedist Marlene Bart explores the tension between objectivity and imagination in the artistic adaptation of systematic organising elements. In four cabinet chapters, she explores the question of how humans create knowledge by utilising the artistic and historical potential of scientific illustrations, anatomy models, dermoplastics and cabinets of curiosities and translating them into a contemporary language.
