For the Edinburgh International Science Festival, How the Light Gets In ASCUS took over the Lower Church Galleries Summerhall, to present Parallel Perspectives an exhibition of works that intertwine art and science, comprising of three group shows, created from direct collaboration between artists and scientists.
From our residencies programme, the Centre for Immunity, Infection and Evolution artists Doyle, Colman, Hodges and Milne showcased new work delving into the world of pathogens and disease. While the Chamberlain lab, University of Strathclyde artists explored and interpreted the Hungintin protein, the roles and actions of the scientific researchers, and the real side of Huntington’s disease.
We also invited London based Art Neuro, to present their ‘science experiment’ which explored the world of neuroscience through the visual arts, providing an exciting, thought-provoking and unique visual experience. Julia Malle’s neon and scientific glassblowing works linked Parallel Perspectives with the rest of the exhibition rooms, illuminating and guiding visitors through the sprawling corridors of Summerhall.
