Caroline Rothwell: Horizon

26 Jun 2021 – 28 Nov 2021

Caroline Rothwell’s practice explores the intersection of art and science through sculpture, collaged historical prints and digital animations that invite viewers to consider our relationship with the natural environment. The title of her current exhibition, which was commissioned for Hazelhurst Arts Centre, comes from the idea of looking to the horizon – looking out from an immediate frame of reference to the infinite and considering future possibilities.

Christopher Langton: Colonies

26 Jun 2021 – 28 Nov 2021

Christopher Langton is known for his sculptures and large inflatables that explore themes around pop culture, video gaming and science fiction. His exhibition Colonies, which was commissioned for Hazelhurst Arts Centre, is an immersive installation that explores ideas of space colonisation and organisms such as bacteria occupying hosts while considering issues around our shared ecology. With obvious reference to science fiction and biology, the gallery is filled with asteroids, meteorites and other celestial bodies along with real and imagined organisms in the shape of viruses, bacteria and fungi.
