    Brian Knep: Traces

    We are pleased to present Brian Knep’s second solo exhibition at the judi rotenberg gallery. Including video and photography, Knep’s show is an extension of a body of work that he continues to develop through his residency at the Harvard Medical School. Through the scientific study of microscopic worms, Knep engages metaphysical questions of human behavior, the passage time, and our inevitable transition to death. Knep’s study of Caenorhabditis elegans, was inspired by the studies being conducted by scientists at the Harvard lab, specifically the study of aging, or the “disintegration of information” as they call it. However, while Knep applies learned methods of research, he departs from the dogma of science, and adopts a more human approach to the topic of aging. He is intrigued by the limitations of science, the inability of such a brilliant system to carry us closer to understanding human existence.
