Featuring sculptures drawn from a thirty - year period - from the end of the 1960s to the 1990s - it showcases the artist's committed exploration of art and science. Takis carved out a new aesthetic territory, incorporating invisible forms of energy such as magnetic, acoustic or light waves as the fourth dimension of his work.

Born in Athens, Takis (né Panagiotis Vassilakis) took art into realms that were previously considered the domain of physicists and engineers. Describing himself as an 'instinctive scientist', he harnessed foundational forces to generate the forms, movements and sounds of his static and kinetic works. Magnetism, including the bioelectromagnetics of the human brain, fascinated Takis and was a constant subject of study, not least when he was visiting researcher at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the late 1960s. An important figure in the cultural scenes of New York, London and Paris, he associated with a diverse group of writers, musicians and artists including the Beat poets, The Beatles and Marcel Duchamp, the latter dubbing him 'the ploughman of magnetic fields'.
