In the solo exhibition, “Uncertain Knowledge”, the artist Jenny Brockmann deals with the handling and the effects of uncertain knowledge in interaction with humans. Whether it is the weather forecast, the forecast of a volcanic eruption or the probabilities of the next earthquake – with the need to maximize our safety, information about these events are transformed into future facts and thus produce the so-called uncertain knowledge.
Using the media kinetics, sculpture, drawing and photography, Brockmann’s works across a variety of genres and questions the connection of scientific data collection and its shifting transfer by attempting to apply it to everyday life. Delicate dotted landscapes, kinetic light installations, massive and fluid magnetic connections and haptic photographs have an aesthetic appeal that follows Brockmann’s artistic intent. Poetically and precisley, this exhibition, through the presentation of works from 2017, provides a concise insight into Brockmann’s work from the last years.
