"Flights of Reality: Charles Avery, Matthew Ritchie, Keith Tyson, Grace Weir, Keith Wilson"
2002-01-12 until 2002-03-03
Kettle's Yard Gallery
Cambridge, , UK United Kingdom

Flights of Reality parallels science in uncovering new routes of thought. Drawing on myth, science, empirical observation, information theories, and philosophy, the works oscillate between the familiar and the unknown, between revealed truths and imaginary worlds. The exhibition brings together new and recent work by five contemporary artists who pursue aberrant lines of thought to create competing versions of a world nudged from its everyday axis.

The unfinished, and improvised nature of the works could be described as thoughts in progress mapping out patterns of the possible, or the debris of ideas that remain from the collision between science and the everyday. In their creation of new or rival cosmologies, these playful and speculative works are reminders of the ways in which we do not see the world.

New works include a 9 x 15 drawing consisting of 50,000 triangles by Charles Avery; Eschaton, a 45 drawing by Matthew Ritchie; a new video work by Grace Weir, who represented Ireland at this years Venice Biennale and is making her debut in the UK; a large scale installation by Keith Wilson, based upon the latest, and potentially the most revolutionary theory to hit the world of science, the asymmetrical structure of the fish brain.
