Art and Science in Symbiosis

"Metaspore" by Anicka Yi

Tour with workshop activities in the exhibition

Educational objectives and activities
In her work, Anicka Yi introduces a new artistic vocabulary in which the words of science and art become interconnected, creating sci-fi landscapes that are there to be explored: water, earth, air and the creatures that inhabit them – with the symbiotic intervention of scientific research and artificial intelligence – come together to form new ecosystems with infinite interconnections and relationships.

The entire session will take place in the exhibition.
The children will be divided into groups and each group will be given some words, with their meanings, from the glossary of Anicka Yi’s exhibition. The children will then explore the exhibition on their own and will try to match the terms they have been given to one or more works in the show.

When this is done, each group will tell the others what words they were given and explain how and why they matched them to the various works. Based on what the students say, the arts tutors will round out the themes that Anicka Yi explores in her art.

The visit and the activity will lead to an understanding of Anicka Yi’s art, in which science and art work in a symbiotic manner to convey a contemporary vision of the mechanisms that arise between human beings and their environment.
