Exhibition

Libby Heaney is a visual artist and holds a PhD in quantum physics. Her work explores the impact of technologies such as quantum computing and machine learning on society, questioning them in both a critical and playful way.

Her oeuvre includes video installations, game environments, sculptures, performances, and participatory experiments alike. HEK presents the first solo exhibition of the British artist in Switzerland and focuses on current works that explore quantum computing and successfully use the quantum computer as an artistic medium for the development of a unique artistic language that allows the audience to experience the multi-layered reality of the quantum world in a sensual way.

«Quantum experiences can help people realise that things aren’t boundaried and fixed. Within the context of the climate crisis, it’s so important to understand that interconnectivity.»

«When investigating what any technology can and can’t do through art, I often turn to concepts from quantum physics as a way of understanding the pluralities and entanglements between technology, the world and ourselves. There are connections between facets of reality that we could never have dreamt of. I’m sure they will shift how people see and understand the world and our place in it.»
