LONDON.- The processes of art and science are fraught with trials and errors, questions and intuitive inspirations. These processes may be called ‘experiments.’ What it is achieved may take new and different forms whether in the hands of an artist or a scientist.

Experiments is the first in a series of exhibitions curated by Artakt with GV Art, that brings together the work of 5 artists whose practice develops with close and productive collaborations with 5 scientists. In a rare opportunity for professionals of each discipline to work together, the artists and scientists explore the productive processes of each other, dispelling the myths of ‘neat laboratory worker versa chaotic creative artist. Alongside the artists work, scientists are invited to present a ‘piece’ or ‘object’ of their choice that relates to the artwork punctuating and bringing insight to the collaboration. Experiments is instigated by Marina Wallace, one of the curators of internationally acclaimed exhibitions, "Spectacular Bodies: Art and Science of the Human Body" and "Seduced: Art and Sex from Antiquity to Now".

Tracing links across practices and disciplines, Experiments sets the scene for a longer standing collaboration between Artakt and GV Art based on common interests broadly in the area of art & science, working with artists and scientists who are central to projects or events and publications that Artakt is conceiving and developing. The collaboration will also provide a platform for Artakt and GV Art to lead in discussions and debates within the art and science spectrum through events, publications and talks held at the gallery.

ARTAKT curates and manages pioneering exhibitions and research led projects at a national and international level in the field of art, science and culture. At the centre of Artakt is the conviction that art, science and culture individually and, above all, collectively, can and should be communicated as creatively, accurately and widely as possible in a daring and innovative way at the highest visual level. Artakt’s research and collaborations result in outstanding and ground-breaking exhibitions, together with related outputs such as academic articles and publications, talks, seminars and conferences as well as performances and satellite events.

GV ART represents a broad community of established and emerging artists. Working in a variety of disciplines, this diverse group share a common artistic and emotional vocabulary which is in sympathy with and helps mould the gallery’s sensibility. Defined by neither ideology nor fashion, it demands only tolerance for the individual voice, interconnectivity between man and environment and fresh approaches to our understanding of the human condition.
