NOUA is pleased to welcome you to a free artist tour in Sheung Yiu's exhibition 'The Poetics of Science’ on Saturday 22. April at 14.00. 

The exhibition ‘The Poetics of Science’ is a two part visual study of science communication. The first part consists of photographs documenting a series of pseudo-scientific experiments conducted in photo studios. Models are invited to perform an experiment for the camera as the artist ‘performs’ the role of a scientist recording the measurements. The second part is a series of photographs studying and reappropriating common visual tropes of scientific imagery, such as sequences, arrows, and scales.
