Future Eaters

Sculpture is of our time


at MUMA | Monash University Museum of Art

22 July – 23 September 2017

Featuring several newly commissioned artworks and installations, the exhibition explores some of the ways sculptural materials and forms are changing as artists respond to the mediated and virtual realities of the world in which we live and work. The exhibition presents a range of contemporary Australian and international artists working with sculptural practices in our present technological age.
Sculpture is of our time but we can also envisage it outliving us and its forms becoming residues of our existence, we most often think of the museum as a space of preservation and exhibition of the past, or platform for new work, and our audience to it as our contemporaries. I wanted to play with the timescale of the museum and push the gallery space into the future, to imagine the viewer of a future era speculating on these sculptural artefacts just as an archaeologist of our own period might speculate on the residue of earlier times.
