The exhibiton „loose ends“ showcases various aspects of artistic research. The works in the show include installations, sculptures, archive collections, and material experiments that utilize interdisciplinary research methods in the fields of medicine, glaciology, material sciences, and anthropology.
The title „loose ends“ refers to the open ends that arise in any creative process and the attempt of bringing those together. However, it also points to the intermediate state in which the researching artists are cons- tantly moving: The five artists describe their work as a process that they constantly scrutinize, reassess, and adjust, while oscillating between scientific studies and their artistic interpretations. Thus the exhibition seeks to involve the viewer in the search of non-hegemonic forms of knowledge, that emerge inbetween science and art.
