Scope Foundation and Perpetual Art Machine presents
A Light at the End of the Tunnel
curated by Lee Wells
A Light at the End of the Tunnel is an epic video art trilogy about the human condition which includes seminal works by 30 international emerging artists.The concept of life, death and rebirth has followed humanity through the ages as the self and the collective whole passes through time, creating a relative chain of events that could be called the history of universal human experience. Its through all of these varying histories, and a perpetual creative avant garde that continue to seek a move vivid understanding of the interconnectedness of life. Our great quest to solve the questions of our age could be exemplified by one of humankind’s greatest achievements at CERN Labs, Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, the worlds largest machine. As the scientists at CERN continue to probe the most fundamental questions of life and the origins of the universe, we seek artists that are asking similar big questions in their creative practice and use their creativity to reveal the world in new and unexpected ways.
Why are we here? What does it all mean? How is it all relative to art in the 21st century?
