Art, Quantum Physics, Genetics...
July 4, 2014
A new exhibition at the Center for Contemporary Art showcases work by Norman Leto, one of Poland’s most innovative young artists.
Leto explores and combines such diverse fields as visual arts, cinema, the exact sciences and the philosophy of science. The exhibition delivers the most comprehensive overview of Leto’s work to date and its title, Photon, is taken from the artist’s latest project, an experimental film of the same title. Excerpts from the film are being shown at the exhibition.
Art in the film blends with quantum physics and astronomy, while genetics blends with sociological deliberations that push the boundaries of political correctness. While the exhibition is on show, selected parts of the film will be used to create a video installation comprising photographs and objects related to the plot of the movie.
Leto, born in 1980, is a visual artist, filmmaker and writer. Some of his pictures, objects and installations take on a physical form, while others only exist in virtual reality. He lives and works in Warsaw.
Until Sept. 28
