November 8th through December 20th, 2014
In the same way as scientists try to determinate the fundamental laws of the Universe, the artists – through their aesthetic practices, dream and read into the world in order to re-integrate us into it as human beings. But can one make visible some complex elements whose physical reality remains unexplainable?
The enigma of dark matter, so far unsolvable, arouses the fascination of astrophysicists as well as artists, who give pride of place to metaphysical questionings. Considering that only 1% of the constituent matter of the Universe can be identified, how can we comprehend the unseizable dark matter and dark energy of which the remaining 99% are made of?
On the occasion of Ankoku / Dark Matters, its new group exhibition dedicated to Japanese creation, the Galerie Da-End invites ten contemporary artists to metaphorically illustrate this great mystery through their photographic and plastic works.
Featuring the art of Yoko FUKUSHIMA, Toshimasa
