Istanbul’s Borusan Contemporary presents “Mat Collishaw: Arrhythmia” through August 18. British artist Mat Collishaw (b. 1966), well known as a member of Young British Artists (YBA), seeks to build bridges between art and science in his new work, referencing Renaissance painter Albrecht Dürer (1471-1528) and 19th-century biologist Ernst Haeckel (1834-1919).

Collishaw’s new works imagine the catastrophe and devastation caused by environmental problems. They combine paintings by Dürer and Haeckel and include AI-made images prompted by text related to the two. Through Dürer, Collishaw emphasizes the importance of meticulous observation of nature, also expressing a sense of impending disaster.

Haeckel was a scientist and an accomplished artist, and through Haeckel, Collishaw suggests that scientific perception of nature requires imagination and sensation.

The title of the exhibition, “Arrhythmia,” reflects the artist’s intention to use artificial intelligence and new technologies to disrupt the normal flow or rhythm of how we respond to nature.
