The Florence Experiment: a first glimpse to the Palazzo Strozzi “experiment”
The Florence Experiment – Palazzo Strozzi, April 19th to August 26th, 10AM / 8PM (10AM / 11PM on Thursday) is a Carsten Höller, Stefano Mancuso installation, curated by Arturo Galansino, the current Director of the Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi.
Between science, art and technology for a brand new Palazzo Strozzi experience
Carsten Höller installations between science, art and technology are used to build a very strong connection with their audience.
In this venture, Höller teams up with Stefano Mancuso, founder of vegetal neurobiology, a new branch committed to the understanding of plant intelligence and behaviour.
The Florence Experiment: thoughts behind the fun
The exhibition / installation The Florence Experiment aims to explore a reflection about the relationship between mankind and plants, towards a new awareness of the way mankind know and interacts with a vegetable organism.
During the exhibition, Palazzo Strozzi is going to be a space ready for scientific and creative as well experiments; a laboratory about behavioural and emotional frameset for all living creatures.
