Ken + Julia Yonetani_Still Life: The Food Bowl (install shots)_2011
Ken + Julia Yonetani are currently exhibiting work in Synapse: A selection, an exhibition curated by ANAT at the Powerhouse Museum as part of ISEA 2013.
Synapse is an initiative of the Australian Network for Art & Technology (ANAT) and the Australia Council for the Arts that supports collaborations between artists and scientists.
Artists and scientists approach creativity, exploration and research in different ways and from different perspectives; when working together they open up new ways of seeing, experiencing and interpreting the world around us. For the past decade the Synapse initiative has provided over 30 Australian artists with the opportunity to pursue speculative creative research projects with scientists and medical researchers in Australia and beyond. This exhibition provides a snapshot of the diverse and fascinating research that participating artists and scientists have pursued over the past five years.
As part of the exhibition, Ken + Julia Yonetani are showing their large scale salt installation Still Life: The Food Bowl, a work whichemerged in 2011 from a Synapse Residency organized and sponsored by Mildura Palimpsest.
The exhibition will run from 8 June - 14 July 2013 at the Powerhouse Museum, Sydney.
