Alchemy

In this series we examined the construct of objects that are informed by a relation to space, time and materiality. According to Bruno Latour, objects exist in the axis of their networks and bring with them a sense of connectedness, or an expanded anamnesis triggered by their ambiguous qualities. Anecdotes and elective affinities between art, alchemy and history inspire an open conversation within the projects. Scientific dogmas and beliefs in supposed elements reinforced by philosophy or religion slowed down the discovery of certain rules of physics and chemistry. Some widely accepted hypotheses of the current age, especially regarding cosmogony, predictably also await to be refuted.
