This installation represents an entirely new project by Andrea Galvani.

Adopting a cross-disciplinary approach that often draws upon scientific methodology, Galvani’s conceptual research informs his use of photography, video, drawing, sculpture, sound, architectural installation, and performance. His work extends our perspective from individual to collective, personal to planetary and beyond—contextualizing human experience within geological time and change.

Increasingly collaborating with the scientific community over the past few years, the artist has generated site-specific installations that were presented at important venues and biennials. Investigating relationships between visibility and invisibility, stability and flux, Galvani pioneers new a conceptual language in the fusion of art and science.

This booth discloses a silent dialogue on fundamental forces and structures through a constellation of objects and images. Like Kazimir Malevich’s Black Square, Galvani’s work seems to envision a new cosmology—one that honors the power of human knowledge while simultaneously negotiating the impossibility of calculations and instruments to behold the mysteries they seek to describe.
