Taking an utterly unique look at the work of philosopher-physicist Karen Barad, five artists have produced a special collaboration which offers a ‘reading’ of Barad’s ambitious book Meeting The Universe Halfway. Over seven weeks, Harriet Plewis, Grace Denton, Victoria Guy, Alice MacKenzie and Nicola Singh have built an environment within Sunderland’s Eagle Building which hopes to encounter Barad’s radical thoughts on quantum physics and the entanglement of matter and meaning in a ground-breaking new way.

Barad, a theoretical physicist and feminist theorist, attempts to offer an account of the world as a whole. Her theory of ‘agential realism’ encapsulates and reworks our understanding of space, time, matter, causality, agency, subjectivity and objectivity.

Still with us? Discover more at the workshop-cum-exhibition, which will invite the viewer to engage with and revisit the space from Monday 4th until Sunday 10th September.
