FLAME SEED

5 Sep 2018-30 Sep 2018

Wed-Sun 10am-4pm

A Willoughby City Council curated group exhibition exploring contemporary surrealism and fantasy

 

Opening Event: Thursday 6 September, 6pm – 8pm

Flame Seed is an exhibition that reimagines the old furnace door of the Incinerator Art Space as a portal to ‘other worlds’. It presents a group of artists whose artwork explores fantasy, futuristic spaces and surreal ideas and actions. The Incinerator’s furnace door once opened onto a combustion furnace, but now sits immobilised on a gallery wall. In this exhibition the door is fancifully conceived in an ‘Alice down the rabbit hole’ or ‘Narnia through the wardrobe’ capacity, suggesting worlds that could potentially exist upon opening. Offering a survey of contemporary approaches to surrealism and fantasy, the exhibition presents hybrid beings, poetic imaginings and farfetched places.

 

Artists: Tara Marynowsky, Adam Norton, Denese Oates, Louis Pratt, Samuel Quinteros, Kate Rohde, Linda Seiffert and Agus Wijaya.
