BioBat Art Space is pleased to announce Summation & Absence, an exhibition consisting of of tactile, immersive installations where the artists engage in research that explores the human condition. By methodically drawing on the natural world, each installation opens a fresh portal into what is at stake for life on this planet, inviting the viewer to reflect on the beauty and complexity of life within a vulnerable ecosystem.

These six artists create works inspired by the sciences of  biology and ecology. Through additions and/or removal of variants such as information, technology, disease and toxins the artists in Summation & Absence create innovative scientific and artistic results.

Curators Etty Yaniv and Christina Massey thoughtfully organized an exhibition highlighting both the differences and the common ground between the artists – their research methods, artistic processes and the resulting diversity in their visual vocabularies.
