It's a long time since this moment
Calendar, November 18, October 18, Visual arts

Visual Arts: It is a long time since this moment

13 Oct – 2 Nov @ Old Custom’s House, Fremantle ·
Presented by Moana Project Space ·

‘It is a long time since this moment’ is a speculative imagining of how we might understand our relationships and ways of being in the world against a backdrop of rapidly shifting ecosystems, capital and labour. These changes can no longer necessarily be called ‘progress’. As our environment deteriorates, so too does humanity’s constructed notions of the body, the self, and the human as distinct from our ecologies, our technologies, and other creatures. The artists featured examine how interrelated systems of bodies—human and nonhuman—may interact and inform one another. In this way, they reimagine our relationship to the past, present, and future of the world.

Featuring the work of Matt Aitken & Mei Swan Lim (WA), Archie Barry (VIC), Marisa Georgiou (QLD), Hannah Hallam-Eames & Samuel Jackson (NZ), and Nadege Philippe-Janon (TAS), ‘It is a long time since this moment’ explores our anxieties around the survival of life on Earth and our future possibilities of connections with other beings, objects, and environments.

‘It is a long time since this moment’ is curated by Moana Project Space’s Jess Boyce, Grace Connors, Miranda Johnson, and Matthew Siddall. Proudly presented as part of Unhallowed Arts Festival, with support from the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries, Artsource, and SymbioticA.

Wednesday – Sunday 11am-6pm
Official opening Thursday 18 November 7pm

Unspoken
Calendar, December 18, Installation, November 18, October 18, Visual arts

Visual Arts: Unspoken by Olga Cironis

20 Oct – 23 Dec @ PICA ·
Presented by PICA ·

“I use and abuse art to communicate and create dialogue, to make sense of the world, even rage against it.” – Olga Cironis

Olga Cironis is a WA-based multidisciplinary artist working in installation and performance. Informed by her Greek, Czech and Australian heritage, Cironis investigates identity, connection to place and counter-histories.

Combining art and life, Unspoken is a durational performance that sees Cironis work in PICA’s Westend Gallery, in a hybrid of both studio and exhibition space. Visitors are invited to enter, observe and engage with the artist as she explores the theme of voicelessness through a participatory moulding project.

Unspoken will be Cironis’ most ambitious project to date and will navigate layers of research, collected stories, process and rituality.

Curated by Eugenio Viola

HyperPrometheus
Calendar, December 18, November 18, October 18, Visual arts

Visual Arts: HyperPrometheus: The Legacy of Frankenstein

20 Oct – 23 Dec @ PICA ·
Presented by PICA ·

HyperPrometheus commemorates the 200th anniversary of the publishing of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, or the Modern Prometheus (1818).

Considered by some to be the first science fiction novel, Frankenstein is both a celebration and warning of the seductive powers and unforeseen outcomes of scientific advancement. It uncannily predicted a world in which humans are able to overcome our limitations through human/non-human hybridity, reproductive and genetic manipulation.

Featuring Australian and international artists, HyperPrometheus re-contextualises Frankenstein for the new millennium within the realms of contemporary and biological arts. Monsters and monstrous creatures abound, in works that test our understanding of what it is to be human, living, natural, functional, valid or valued. Curated by Oron Catts, Laetitia Wilson and Eugenio Viola.

HyperPrometheus is part of SymbioticA’s Unhallowed Arts event series.
Presented in partnership with SymbioticA, The University of Western Australia (UWA)
