Deux Ex Machina at the Bomb Factory Foundation by ARTCOLLECTORNEWS

In collaboration with The Bomb Factory Art Foundation we are pleased to present Deus Ex Machina, a group exhibition that delves into the fundamental issues of human agency, social absurdism, and contemporary notions of ‘divine’ intervention. The exhibition will be on view from 15th June to 9th of July in our Marylebone gallery space.

Deus Ex Machina brings together a diverse line-up of artists, showcasing paintings and sculptures that ignite conversations about the role of rationality in human affairs. Spanning from ancient literature to today's dystopian novels, the archetype of the godly plot device is employed as a narrative tool to question and circumvent the need for moral agency. This exhibition highlights how, across various forms of storytelling—literature, tales, folklore, and fiction—humanity often seeks resolutions that are both surprising and inevitable, using the unexpected to shed light on the anticipated.

From intricate sculptures to abstract paintings and works that talk on arbitrary intervention as a means of relief or resolution, provoking thought about the nature of faith versus the power of self and the responsibility of shaping one's own destiny. Deus Ex Machina invites us to reflect on these themes through the lens of contemporary art, challenging them to consider the balance between external forces and personal agency in the crafting of their narratives.

Location: 206 Marylebone Road, London, NW1, England

Private View : 6-8pm Friday June 14th

Opening times: June 14th - July 9th. Tuesday - Saturday, 11am - 4pm
