The Drawing Center has commissioned Into Ourselves, a new short-term project by Argentinian artist Eduardo Navarro for The Lab which will open on April 6, 2018. Navarro will produce a new series of edible drawings, inspired by quantum physics––specifically the “holographic principle,” which describes how information in the universe can only be scrambled but never destroyed.
The drawings will be placed on shelves with red “heat lamps.” During the course of the exhibition, a soup will be made that will dissolve the drawings to make them digestible. Into Ourselves also explores the idea of shifting our understanding of aesthetic primacy away from the eye and the world of ideas to metabolism, and the stomach.
Organized by Brett Littman, Executive Director.
Into Ourselves has been jointly developed by The Drawing Center and der TANK. It was shown for the first time in November 2017 at der TANK, and has been produced thanks to the support of Nara Roesler and the Consulate General of Argentina in New York.
