Foundation Arts Festival - Foundation15 brief

F15’s Annual Exhibition takes its cue from the cult sci-fi television show Quantum Leap (1989-1993). The protagonist Dr. Sam Beckett is a brilliant scientist who, following his quantum experiment in time travel, leaps through space-time, temporarily inhabiting the bodies of other people and altering the events of history.

“Dr Beckett’s space-time travel parallels the investigative nature of an artist’s practice. Artists also travel through time, referencing, appropriating or challenging concepts and aesthetic notions of their predecessors, often interpreting these ideas through a contemporary filter. Inherent in our comprehension of appropriation is the concept that the new work recontextualises whatever it references, it may ultimately even alter our perception of art history. Beyond this, Quantum Leap’s concern with science, the passage of time, identity, gender and the inhabitance of the ‘other’ has also been a fertile playground for artists.” – Brendan Fox, Curator
