POSTWORLD features Australian artists who create parallel universes. Audiences are invited into the playful, sublime, poetic and cautionary in this exhibition. Drawing on the detritus of human experience, these worlds have their own internal languages existing in alternate time and space.
As the show was built, each artist’s work expanded on this thematic provocation, finding pathways to comfort, resistant to the overwhelming sense of panic. Stillness, awe and appreciation resonated, honouring the world beyond its utility to provide resources for consumption in the Anthropocene.
New fictions (and possible futures) are rendered, providing alternate perspectives on the environment, gender and capitalist hegemony.
