The Natural Philosophers of the 21st Century
Venue: Gallery VER

Opening reception: 20th April 2024, 17:30 onward

Natural philosophy, considered a concept of the past, encompassed many variations, but its earliest interpretation can be assigned to ‘all inquiries about the physical world’. Despite originating from the ancient Greeks, we can assume that the inquiry into nature comes with human existence, the wonder and curiosity humans must have from exploring their surroundings and looking up to the stars at night. This project was initiated from a love of art and science and a fascination with the story of the search for knowledge throughout human history. What is interesting about the concept of natural philosophy lies in its interdisciplinary nature, combining various fields concerning the world around us.

In current society, the spirit of natural philosophy may be found in artists and their practice, whose freedom to pursue any topic of interest possesses no limitation in their chosen subjects or working processes. But instead of inquiring through a scientific method, they do it via the artistic process and represent the result as works of art. In this exhibition, a group of artists represent the reconstructed concept of natural philosophy. Unlike natural philosophers of past centuries, these artists reflect not only on the natural world but all the physical world with its social and political structure within it. The artwork, along with its findings and examination, can lead to an accumulation of knowledge added to by viewers who bring their own perspectives and interpretations, creating a dialogue that increases the scope of inquiries.
