Considering Dynamics & the Forms of Chaos

“Considering Dynamics & the Forms of Chaos” is an exhibition showcasing the work of two artists: Angela Bulloch and Maria Zerres. Their practice is brought together under one title and framed by the notion of entropy. Entropy is commonly understood as a measure of disorder. It is a key term that characterises the movement towards chaos, and it appears in a variety of fields such as physics, probability theory, sociology and information technology. Entropy is that which structures chaos. Within contemporary art, entropy has emerged to refer to installations often associated with entropic states or with representations of order, disorder and information, and their homogeneity. Through Angela Bulloch’s (b. 1966, Canada) and Maria Zerres’ (b. 1961, Germany) works, suggestions of entropy transpire in different ways and through their respective artistic forms. Inherent to both artists’ practices is a congruous representation of the idea of a movement towards chaos.
