Marlene Bart: Theatrum Radix
May 6 - May 27| Free
Virtual natural order between art and science: Is there a natural “order of things?” To answer this question, man has created a wide variety of visual systems that promise orientation and security. The virtual reality installation Theatrum Radix conceived by artist Marlene Bart encourages the critical examination of this security in the context of the limits of visual and spatial perception.
Bart transforms the auditorium of the historic Anatomy Theatre into a walk-in encyclopaedia, in which glass and plastic objects created by the artist, natural history collection items and their virtual equivalents coexist and form new combinations.
The virtual reality animation can be watched from Tuesday to Saturday between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. via VR headsets.
