opens on 11 October 2006
curator: Rene B Javellana, SJ
"Flora: Beauty, Desire and Death, an exhibition commemorating
the tercentenary of Bro.Georg Jose Kamel, S.J.’s death,
brings in dialogue the arts and sciences
by meditating on the role images and illustrations play
in the development of these diverse disciplines.
While science uses images as a support for texts and equations,
art employs images less for their denotative value
but for their connotative repercussions.
Images in science point to precise facts,
images in art open possibilities for exploration."
