Following on from Heaney’s 2022  solo shows with Light Art Space, Berlin and arebyte Gallery, London, Fiumano Clase are pleased to present remiQXing still, a solo presentation of video and physical works exploring the emerging field of quantum computing as both a subject and medium, turning the gallery space into the showroom of her fictional quantum computing company QX (Quantum eXperience).

Quantum computers are an entirely new type of computer being intensely pursued by big tech companies and governments. While only prototype quantum computers exist, when they are fully developed their immense computing power will undoubtedly change the world.

Heaney was the first artist to work with quantum computing as a functioning artistic medium. In this exhibition she continues her exploration of the possibilities of quantum computing in art, through new layered collages, corrupted advertising and unique unique slime-like sculptures made of blown glass glass.

In remiQXing still, these works  are advertisements, promotional products and merchandise of the fictional company QX, which enables Heaney to investigate both the capitalist narratives around quantum computing as well as its currently overlooked radical potential.
