Jon Burgerman's Lossy Botany Lab at the Helium Cowboy!

This July, Jon Burgerman and Heliumcowboy artspace will set up the Lossy Data Lab (NY 2009) again. For another time, Jon will explore the boundaries of art and scientific research in a neo-dadaistic manner:

"The Lossy Data Lab has had to relocate and move it’s research into botany after a lot of the data from NYC seemed in conclusive and corrupted. The lab also ran out of money. It felt studying plant life, observing new species and creating its own hybrid forms would be a better use of its merge resources. Also, through pure chance and accident the lab has discovered some of the plants it’s cultivating have special medicinal properties. We’d like to state that the lab is in no way going to purely focus it’s energies growing and selling such specimens to the down trodden and hedonistic thrill seekers of society." (Jon Burgerman)

“The Lossy Botany Lab” is the second solo exhibition of the young british artist in Hamburg that brings together a whole series of new works including soft sculp-tures, paintings, drawings as well as a botanical installation on site.

And they need your help! Bring your plants to Jon!

Donators will receive a small yet valuable gift from the president of the Lab, Mr Jon Burgerman, as a thank you at the opening gala event on the evening of July 1st. House plants, cacti, small shrubs, potted herbs, sticks with leaves on them, will all be gratefully accepted.

Just drop them off at the Lossy Data Lab HQ: heliumcowboy artspace, Bäckerbreitergang 73-75,
UNTIL TUESDAY, June 29 the latest! The earlier the better!

Lossy Botany Lab, Vernissage Thursday, July 1st, 8 - 11 pm
