The solo project, “Alchemical Beasts”, by South African collaborative duo, AD-Reflex, explore intersections of ‘alchemy’ in contemporary art and science. Alchemy, the royal art of transforming stones into silver and base metals into gold, has captured the popular imagination for centuries and is a particularly fruitful subject for artists. AD-Reflex depicts the artist studio as ‘alchemical laboratory’, wherein digital culture and new technologies collide in unexpected ways with oil painting and various other paint mediums. Resulting from this, the artists also shed light on our changing understanding of the world and our position in it.
The show takes place during the 7th Miami River Art Fair, Miami Convention Center, Downtown Brickell, Miami, December 03 - December 05, 2018.
