A house for Mr Biswas

  • Comment

Always at the cutting edge, the South London Gallery in Peckham is set 'to challenge the idea that science is the monopoly of western culture'. Integral to this is 'a continuous 10-day performance/installation' by artist and musician Ansuman Biswas. At 21.00 on 13 March, following a talk from physicist David Peat, Biswas will enclose himself in a black box in the gallery space, and spend the next 10 days in darkness, 'meditating and fasting'. Apparently this is a re-examination of 'a thought experiment' crucial to quantum physics. 'Only when the box is ripped open in a special ceremony at 21.00 on 22 March will the result of the experiment be known.' As if this were not excitement enough, on 20 March Brazilian anthropologist Luis Eduardo Luna will explore the science of indigenous plant gathering.
