Theo Jansen’s Strandbeests Singapore Lands In ArtScience Museum https://t.co/XfKd2HhSHM
The exhibition concludes with a new installation by Singapore-based artist, Isabelle Desjeux, commissioned by ArtScience Museum for the exhibition. Desjeux’s installation, Backyard Lab, is inspired by Jansen’s creative process, and his use of simple, everyday objects. Like Jansen, Desjeux trained as a scientist before becoming an artist, and uses her understanding of biology to create artworks that feel like scientific experiments. Her artworks question the scientific method and the objectivity of science. Backyard Lab is a quasi-laboratory where visitors can follow the process of creation from sketching to prototyping, through trial, error and experimentation.
