Alien Nature

Wednesday 30 January 2019 - Sunday 24 February 2019

Alicia King, 2018, The future of nature (II) (detail). Pigmented polyurethane, magnetics. 40cm x 40cm x 30cm

Alien Nature explores ideas of biological utopias within the context of the technologisation of nature and anthropomorphisation of technology. In this context, what once seemed familiar is made strange.

New works traverse biological metamorphosis, premised by a contemporary global engagement with new technology that places us eternally on the brink of the ‘future’. This idea preoccupies King's ongoing practice, exploring the transformative potential of biological matter in humans and the wider environment. 

Playing upon language and material specificity to create connections to biological origins, object and text-based works play upon concepts of technological utopias/dystopias and contemporary pop-culture. 

This exhibition is supported by the City of Yarra through a Small Project Grant.
