Fluid Matter: Liquid and Life in Motion
Exhibition, MU, Eindhoven, Netherlands.
This exhibition explores the theme of fluidity inside and between bodies, cells, and substances. Life’s processes abound with continuous exchanges and are often embodied in liquid form, flowing throughout complex and microscopic environments; yet, these phenomena often escape perception. It takes the intervention of artists and designers to bring them into the realm of the observable, lend them meaning, highlight their beauty, or find their material potential at different scales.
The works on show reflect on, demonstrate, or even contest advances in life sciences research. They also probe fluidity in the realms of inter-species exchange, personal identity, metabolic processes, and in the exchange between our bodies and our oceans.
