Copernicus

from 90.00

"To know that we know what we know, and to know that we do not know what we do not know, that is true knowledge." – Nicolaus Copernicus 

Copernicus was a mathematician and astronomer who developed the heliocentric model of the universe, arguing that it was the Sun, not the Earth, that sat at the centre of the universe. In this piece, there is a tension between the scientific and the divine and celestial. Ancient Roman Gods are recast as contemporary figures. Their place in the heavens is slowly undone by scientific knowledge.
