Clouds, their formation and their substance, have long been a much-discussed topic in art and science. For artist Agnes Meyer-Brandis, it was thus a unique opportunity to be invited by the German Aerospace Center (DLR) to participate in one of its zero-g flights, which are primarily reserved for scientific purposes, and to work under conditions of temporary weightlessness on her art project “Cloud Core Scanner.”

Her current installation IN THE TROPOSPHERE LAB provides insights into the material produced under conditions distant from earth. The exhibition tells of the formation of clouds and shows conditions and combinations of art and science during zero gravity. With the exhibition by Agnes Meyer-Brandis, the project space of the Schering Stiftung once again presents a contemporary art project that stimulates interdisciplinary debate and builds bridges to scientific research. The lab as a gravimetric document of the “Cloud Core Scanner” experiment shows a world alternating between controlled and bound-less states – artistic research in search of the reality level of constructions of the matter that surrounds us.

By supporting projects in frontier areas and at the interfaces of traditional disciplines, the Schering Stiftung wants to pave the way for new ideas and thoughts by bringing together artists and scientists. To this end, we have organized a lecture program in conjunction with the “Cloud Core Scanner” project and invite you to use the discussion as a background for discussions with scientists working in aerosol (cloud) research.

Agnes Meyer-Brandis studied mineralogy in Aachen and sculpture in Maastricht and Düsseldorf. The young Cologne-based artist who works at the interface of art and science has shown her work at international exhibitions and festivals and has received numerous fellowships and awards.

During the exhibition, the Sophiensaele in Berlin-Mitte present Agnes Meyer-Brandis’ “MAKING CLOUDS, or ON THE ABSENCE OF WEIGHT – A Contemporary Traveling Movie Show” on February 5 and 6, 2010. A combination of film, performance and lecture, the traveling movie show unites contemporary art with quite surreal forms of science such as nanotechnology, fluid dynamics research or meteorology. The central metaphor for the filmed and real processes is the theory of cloud formation. The audience experiences the reality in the movie and the trick in reality.

Curator: Carsten Seiffarth (Berlin)

Art is as much subject to the fundamentals of physics as science. When scientists enter weightlessness in order to experimentally study interconnections in a reality distant from earth, then there is a corresponding need for the arts for the same reasons.

Profile 

Agnes Meyer-Brandis, geboren 1973, lebt und arbeitet in Köln. Ihre künstlerische Arbeit ist von naturwissenschaftlichen Einflüssen und ihrer Methodik durchdrungen. Die Installationen bewegen sich an den Berührungspunkten von Fakt und Fiktion, Fantasie und Technologie.
Im Rahmen ihrer künstlerischen Forschung in „unterirdischen“ oder erdfernen Bereichen entwickelt sie unablässig neue Apparaturen und Recherchesysteme. Diese eigenwilligen, der Wissenschaft entlehnten Suchgeräte bilden Schnittstellen zu schwer zugänglichen oder verborgenen Räumen und Möglichkeitswelten. So beschäftigt sich Agnes Meyer-Brandis mit Orten und Situationen des Öffentlichen und des Imaginären gleichermaßen.

Agnes Meyer-Brandis studierte Mineralogie in Aachen und Bildhauerei in Maastricht und Düsseldorf. Die junge Kölner Künstlerin, die sich mit ihren Arbeiten an der Schnittstelle von Kunst und Wissenschaft bewegt, ist bereits in internationalen Ausstellungen und Festivals präsent und hat zahlreiche Stipendien und Auszeichnungen erhalten. Zuletzt war ihr Werk im Rahmen einer Einzelausstellung im National Center for Contemporary Art (NCCA), Jekaterinburg, sowie einer Gruppenausstellung im NCCA Moskau, Russland zu sehen.
