ALCHEMY
Jul 25 - Aug 18, 2019
Alchemy is an exhibition of new works by Broken Fingaz, Carrie Reihardt and Helen Bur.
 
The exhibition will be installed in the Prints & Originals Gallery at Saatchi Gallery from 25 July to 18 August 2019. Entry to the exhibition is free.
 
Alchemy was a branch of natural philosophy that featured in many cultures around the world. It is most closely associated with attempts to transform base metals into more valuable noble metals. Both alchemy and art are each often perceived as blends of science, magic, mythology and religion. Within this exhibition the artists utilise base materials and transform these into more valued works of art. The artists use various elements to transform abstract ideas and emotions into physical works of beauty.
 
18/07/19 - More works will be uploaded in coming days and details on some other works confirmed.

Click to enlargeCYRIL DE COMMARQUE AND KATE DAUDY : ARTISTS-IN-RESIDENCE
opens 2/11
De Commarque interrogates the impact of technological and scientific advancement on Earth’s geology and ecosystems, encouraging visitors to contemplate a new world where the notion of Homo Sapiens is superseded by a species of its own creation; Homo Artificialis, imagined through a series of sculptural mise-en-scenes.
 
In addition to de Commarque’s installation, British artist Kate Daudy utilises her vast knowledge of Egyptology and Ancient Egyptian faith and traditions to produce an installation that draws on her relationship with death and time. Starting with Daudy’s interactive study, visitors are taken through an immersive journey exploring themes that include mortality, faith and science, human presence, and history.
 
During the first months of the exhibition, ‘Artificialis’ and ‘It Wasn’t That At All’ will open the conversation further to the public through a dynamic programme of talks and events by collaborators and leading experts in their fields.
