The online catalogue of the exhibition “Pink Box”

04 August 2015

The catalogue of the exhibition project “Pink Box” by an art community “VGLAZ” is now available online.

“Pink Box” is a metaphor often used by the scientists studying human brain. Using this name for our thinking organ neuroscientists and psychologists draw an analogy between the “blackbox” method in cybernetics, where the study of object with unknown inner component is held through studying its reactions to external stimulation. Thus they emphasize that brain mechanisms still remain a mystery. The scientists have not yet succeeded in finding our inner “blackbox”, the exact localization of the memory throughout the brain. Some of the art objects and videos featured at the exhibition were created in collaboration with scientists as visual interpretation of researches. Other works are artistic responses to the science questions. 

Participants of the project: Georgyi Ostretsov, Georgyi Litichevsky, Olga Kroytor, Alexandra Paperno, Lyudmila Konstantinova, Kristina Yatkovskaya, Olga Bozhko, Svetlana Isaeva, Irina Korina, Elena Kovylina, Sergey Kishchenko, Dmitry Bulnygin, “EliKuka” (Oleg Eliseev and Evgeny Kukoverov), Daria Krotova, Natalia Struchkova, Ivan Tuzov, Ivan Sotnikov, Oleg Kotelnikov. 

Curator — Elizaveta Shagina.
