    We have collected for you the most interesting registered lectures, meetings and discussion panels that have taken place at CCA ŁAŹNIA as part of the Art + Science Meeting programme since the beginning of the project in 2011. The events have been grouped by category.     LECTURES   Witold Libionka - When are the robots going to be replaced by humanoids?     Both artists and scientists are exploring the brain, trying to create its images, sculptures and installations of it or – on the other hand – AI and neural networks. Specialization in the various fields of knowledge narrowed and scattered the scope of these researches, provoking discussion about the need to develop a platform that connects both artistic and scientific communities. More and more often we feel the need for consilience – united knowledge, whose various do

A few words of introduction to Damien Hirst’s “New Religion” | Jadwiga Charzyńska

Texts | 21-11-2016
How did Damien Hirst’s New Religion find its way to Gdańsk to become part of the Art+Science Meeting?This question is crucial to my understanding of the romance between art and science.For centuries, these phenomena have always come together, irrespective of the era.   Renaissance humanism formed the cornerstone of modern culture.The turn of the 19th and 20th centuries marked the rejection of academism in visual arts.This gave rise to the artistic fascination with revolutionary discoveries and scientific theories; artists began to delve into science, drawing on philosophy and psychology.They began to talk about extending the intellectual layer in art, while contestation and provocation became equally important to the artistic process as the ability to draw or paint.At the same time, there appeared voices highlighting the ever greater gap of understanding between humanists and scientists.Tumultuous political and social changes, together with unprecedented technological progress, created the conditions for socially engaged art.   Artistic protest turned into the leading canon throughout the entire 20th century.The intellectual and critical aspect of works dominated over aesthetics or skill.Damien Hirst also began his career by reaching for very strong means of expression.

    Masaki Fujihata

    Masaki Fujihata – is a pioneer in new media art, renowned in Japan as well as abroad. His CG work was much celebrated in the 1980s, before his interests shifted to creating 3D sculptures from data using 3D printing, as in his CNC-routed Geometric Love 1987, the stereo-lithography Forbidden Fruits 1989, and his small-scale sculptures using Micro Machine technology. In the mid-1990s, Fujihata produced canonical pieces of what would later be called “interactive art,” including the multimedia installation Beyond Pages 1995 and the exploration of networking technologies Global Interior Project 1995. His work problematizes everything from how we interact with interfaces to the ways we might communicate in virtual space. In particular, his experiments with GPS technology beginning in 1992 take a rather uncommon technical tack in gathering data, making for a meticulously composed and unparalleled series of cyberspatia creations that can only be called “the cinema of the future,” or “the shape of media to come.” His 2003 Field-Work@Alsace compiled interviews about international borders. The 2009 musical piece Simultaneous Echoes was created in Northern Ireland. Fujihata’s latest signature piece is the 2012 Voices of Aliveness, created in Nantes, France, assembling the shouts of cyclists in virtual space. Global Interior Project #2 won the 1996 Golden NIKA Award, Voices of Aliveness won an Ars Electronica Award of Distinction in 2013, and Simultaneous Echoes received the 2010 Ministry of Education Award for Fine Arts. His own archive from 1972 to 2016, Anarchive 6 Masaki Fujihata, uses Augmented Reality technology to combine digital data with printed materials, published in the anarchive series, Paris France in 2016.

Her research focuses on the philosophies and histories of the body, informed by gender studies, queer theory and French post-structuralism. This informs an art practice that critically resists and subverts normalising representations, constructions and perceptions of subjectivity, sociality and embodiment. Her current research projects visually and textually explore: 1. the ethical and aesthetic consequences of stem cell technologies on understandings of life, death and personhood; 2, the potential of the art object to articulate ideas, feelings and experiences of melancholy, nostalgia, memory and mourning in a way that actively challenges the limits and understandings of loss and desire is a practicing artist, writer and academic based in Western Australia, where she is employed as a lecturer in the Schools of Design and Art and Media Culture and Creative Arts at Curtin University.

She earned her MA degree at the Faculty of Visual Arts, Strzemiński Academy of Art in Lodz (Poland), and is currently working on her PhD project under the Nature-Culture Programme of the Artes Liberales Faculty, University of Warsaw (Poland). While developing her artistic projects at biological laboratories, she also conducts ethnographic and autoethnographic observations, which help her explore the role of non-human actors, such as liminal beings, biofacts and transgenic organisms, in the production of contemporary culture. She shows her projects both at exhibitions (e.g. Pokusa nieśmiertelności/The Temptation of Immortality at the Copernicus Science Center in Warsaw; Uporczywe upodobanie/Pernicious Predilection at the Labyrinth Gallery in Lublin) and at conferences and festivals (e.g. Taboo, Transgresion, Transcendance in Art&Science [Greece, Mexico], FEMeeting [Portugal], and Foro de Estudias Visuales [Mexico]). As an important part of her practices, she writes texts showcasing the performative process of art&science project development (e.g. “Art&science: Autoetnografia artystki realizującej projekty w laboratoriach biologicznych” in Kultura i społeczeństwo; “Ciało w świecie post-natury – byty liminalne. Projekt safe suicide” in Cięcie ciał-ruchome obrazy). In her work, she emphasises the epistemic and didactic dimensions of art. In 2016-2018, she collaborated with the education sections of  the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw and the Zachęta National Gallery of Art in Warsaw. She uses these experiences in workshops which she organises around her own projects. www.karolinazyniewicz.com
