As part of its special Artist-In-Residency programme, Saatchi Gallery is delighted to present two new multi-media installations by Cyril de Commarque and Kate Daudy. Invited as a contemporary response to Tutankhamun: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh, both artists will install across two adjoining galleries their independent solo projects.

De Commarque interrogates the impact of technological and scientific advancement on Earth’s geology and ecosystems, encouraging visitors to contemplate a new world where the notion of Homo Sapiens is superseded by a species of its own creation; Homo Artificialis, imagined through a series of sculptural mise-en-scenes.

In addition to de Commarque’s installation, British artist Kate Daudy utilises her vast knowledge of Egyptology and Ancient Egyptian faith and traditions to produce an installation that draws on her relationship with death and time. Starting with Daudy’s interactive study, visitors are taken through an immersive journey exploring themes that include mortality, faith and science, human presence, and history.

During the first months of the exhibition, Artificialis and It wasn’t that at all will open the conversation further to the public through a dynamic programme of talks and events by collaborators and leading experts in their fields.

Visitors can stay up to date with the programme by checking the Saatchi Gallery website.
