A Space Oddity

Saturday, 28 September 2013 - Sunday, 10 November 2013

Friday 27 September 2013 6-8pm

Artists: Akira Akira, Antoinette J. Citizen, Adad Hannah and Denys Arcand, Colin Harman, Will Pappenheimer, Dominic Redfern, Darren Sylvester, Philip Samartzis, Masato Takasaka.

Curators: Jan Duffy and Matthew Perkins

A Space Oddity explores the human condition in a contemporary world characterized by a sense of identity that is de-centered and multiple. In this expanding and contracting world our perceptions of space are continually challenged.

While the screen has become a prominent way to engage in new ways of thinking about ourselves and the world there is still a human need for tangible engagement. The artists in this exhibition respond to a variety of real-world spaces as well as web based and augmented realities through performance, fantasy, interactions and site-specific works.
