In response the exhibition Interalia 2014, CHELSEA space has invited the artist Grenville Davey to expand some of the ideas and theories that have influenced the production of the work for the show with our very own Dr David Berman, Reader in Theoretical Physics at Queen Mary University of London. Grenville Davey had a six-month residency at the School of Physics and Astronomy from December 2010. Drawing on his long-term sculptural interests in works where pairs or families of works show a relation, Davey was drawn to the research of Dr David Berman. Dr Berman's research has focussed on making the hidden symmetries of string theory manifest through using a generalised geometric framework. This idea resonated with Davey's practice as an artist and has resulted in a long-term collaboration.
This event will open out these ideas to the audience and provide the space for some of the more complicated issues surrounding string theory to be discussed.
The exhibition, Interalia 2014, is at CHELSEA space from 23rd April - 31 May, 2014.
