«The Noing Uv It» er en utstilling om gjenstander og deres avbildninger, stoff og materiens hukommelse, samt tingenes kjente og underliggende natur. Med en sammenstilling av verk fra over 30 internasjonale kunstnere, i tillegg til trilobitfossiler, en animasjonsfilm på atomnivå av IBM, byggematerialer utviklet for månen av European Space Agency, og tidlige computere og robotteknologi, tar utstillingen opp muligheten for at det kan finnes en latent primitiv bevissthet i levende og døde materialer.

The show traces back to include some historic works and artists, highlighting their often enigmatic and intuitive relation to the agency and efficacy of various materials and matter. At the same time it reveals a synergy with a number of younger artists and their connection to the object, the image, and the world, as it is informed through the now ubiquitous reality of the digital. Using current discoveries in physics and science at large, it will also allow more subtle or esoteric elements into the space of the exhibition, including an animated film produced by manipulating individual atoms, a lunar building block from the European Space Agency, examples of primitive fossilised eyes, as well as a number of early computer and robotic technologies. In this way it points toward a more haptic, object-based vocabulary or intelligence – a kind of secular animism.
