Nature is never so admired as when she is understood. – Bernard le Bovier de Fontenelle (1657-1757).
NATURvitenskap showcases a number of artists who take a scientific approach to their practice, albeit with a ponderous inquisitiveness towards natural phenomena. As artists, they can allow themselves to merge fiction and reality freely, thus being ambiguous and direct at the same time. Art’s inherent freedom opens up possibilities for alternative perspectives and a new understanding. In this way, art and natural science can still inform, and benefit from, one another.
