“Intergalactic Plasma: a way back to go forward” is an innovative exhibition that embodies the trickster, the intangible, and the contradictory to engage the public in social discourse, reflection, and social inclusion. The name Intergalactic Plasma is drawn from scientific research suggesting that lightning (energy in plasma form) originates from cosmic rays entering the atmosphere, which form in supernovae explosions in intergalactic space.
For this exhibition, artist Bon Mott utilises recent scientific discoveries and draws from Indigenous science regarding the creation of lightning to challenge exclusive gender norms and promote inclusive practice. All works were created at Second Space Projects (2SP), Fitzroy.
Richmond Town Hall, 8.30am – 5pm, Monday through Friday until 1 May 2020.
