The Escapist BHST (Black Hole Spacetime)


To be launched in September 2019, The Escapist BHST (Black Hole Spacetime) is a digital commission by Serpentine Galleries, London.

The project will be simultaneously accessible online through a ring of 8 sky based portals in Augmented Reality.

Each portal can also be downloaded and set as a desktop image on computer screens, tablets and phones.

The Escapist BHST is a non specific interplanetary entity whose depicted experiences are a poetic imagining of spaces of understanding within and beyond those of contemporary science.

The project consists of drawings, a comic strip, watercolours, diagrams, oil paintings and includes a group of works which envision intelligent life forms on other planets, drawn and painted by scientists at CERN, Geneva.

From SURVIVOR (F) to The Escapist BHST (Black Hole Spacetime) will be published as a fully illustrated book by Serpentine Galleries Koenig Books, London in September 2019.

From SURVIVOR (F) to The Escapist BHST (Black Hole Spacetime) will be exhibited at Annely Juda Fine Art, London from 19 September - 2 November 2019.

SURVIVOR (F) and The Escapist BHST (Black Hole Spacetime) began as two independent projects until one day a portal opened between them, located somewhere inside a painting of an imaginary museum in outer space. In the exhibition the two projects will be divided by a physical portal between the two main galleries.
