This series of exhibitions examines the known characteristics of life within our physical world; playing with scale to capture the fleeting lifespan of living cells, the unacknowledged microbes within the food system and the infinite forces of our environment.

Syncrasy Exhibiting Artists

Beverley Hood

We began as part of the body

Through this series of immersive artworks, inspired by the eczema genetic research laboratory of Prof Sara Brown, Beverley Hood reflects complex human and ethical questions about our relationship between the body, science and technology.

Victoria Evans

Oscillations

Inspired by science and the complex inter-relatedness of the physical world, this exhibition reflects Victoria Evans’ interest in the way distant or invisible phenomena, such as the forces of gravity, can have a tangible effect on our day-to-day lives.

Sneha Solanki

E Numbers V2.0

Probing the habitats of the ‘un-natural‘, Sneha Solanki presents a new and expanding rendition of the ‘E-Number’ food additive system, focusing on the micro-organisms that have been intentionally and genetically altered, created or re-programmed as part of our food landscape.
