BioBat Art Space is pleased to announce Summation & Absence, an exhibition consisting of of tactile, immersive installations where the artists engage in research that explores the human condition. By methodically drawing on the natural world, each installation opens a fresh portal into what is at stake for life on this planet, inviting the viewer to reflect on the beauty and complexity of life within a vulnerable ecosystem.

These six artists create works inspired by the sciences of biology and ecology. Through additions and/or removal of variants such as information, technology, disease and toxins the artists in Summation and Absence create innovative scientific and artistic results.

Curators Etty Yaniv and Christina Massey thoughtfully organized an exhibition highlighting both the differences and the common ground between the artists - their research methods, artistic processes and the resulting diversity in their visual vocabularies.
