Kai Wasikowski has been invited to exhibit as part of Oceans from here, a group exhibition at ACP Project Space in Sydney. Opening on 7 September, this two-part exhibition explores the aesthetics of water, its ebb and flow as a global life force.
Oceans from here reflects on the element of water as a vital force that defines planetary geography, etching the landscape and defining the continents. It moves through disparate sectors of the globe as precipitation – mist, rain, sleet and snow. As humans, we are bound within nature’s water cycle – perspiring and transpiring. It is the main component of our bodily fluids, which carry essential nutrients to the organs and remove toxic wastes. Our physical and psychological states are, like the tidal movement of rivers and oceans, affected by the moon’s gravitational forces. Water flows from the environment into the body and vice versa. The group show is a response to the visceral and cerebral, as well as sacred and somatic nature of water.
Kai’s work will be shown alongside artists Chris Bennie, Dean Cross, Emma Hamilton, Honey Long + Prue Stent and John Young Zerunge. This two-part exhibition includes a Prelude to Oceans from here on show at ACP Project Space Gallery from 27 July – 1 September 2018, including artists Dean Cross, Julia Davis and Grant Stevens.
Oceans from here runs from 7 September – 20 October, 2018.
