Read more about Andrew Carnie of Issue #1 below.
Artist and academic Andrew Carnie explores the inner workings of life and the complexities surrounding what sustains it. In the early stages of his work, Carnie communicates with scientists from different fields regarding his themes and ideas. His work is often time-based in nature, involving slide projections, dissolve systems, or video projected onto complex screen configurations.
Nurturing and tending to, dissolving and diminishing, Carnie’s work engages the viewer in a very intimate way from holding a dissolving heart made of soap to large-scale imagery projections. In a darkened space, layered images appear and disappear on suspended screens, the developing display absorbing the viewer into an expanded sense of space and time through the slowly unfolding narratives that evolve before and around them.
Andrew Carnie’s work is notable as the viewer’s interaction becomes equally important to the meaning of the piece itself. His work has been exhibited at the Science Museum, London, the Natural History Museum, Rotterdam, the Museum of Design in Zurich, Exit Art in New York, among many others. He regularly exhibits and is represented by Robert Devcic at GV Art Gallery London and by Mark Segal at The Artists Agency.
