About

Heather & Ivan Morison's work engages with and responds to their surroundings. Known for their larger public works, they make use of natural as well as industrial materials and processes to create events and spaces that make the viewer question the situation and their participation. The summer, Ultrasauros, a spectacular 16 metre tall recreation of accidental dinosaur, will graze Southsea Common. A set of giant dinosaur bones was discovered in the 1970s in the United States by Professor Jim Jensen, and was believed to be the largest dinosaur ever. However, it was later revealed that the collection of fossils came from two different dinosaur species and Ultrasauros was, in fact, a fiction. Within the gallery, the artist's strategies of engagement and dissonance are re-imagined in an exhibition of new sculptural and photographic works, which explore how things may transcend their given forms to create the vehicles for humankind to journey beyond the temporal world.
