About

"Deep Space Moolog is fascinating.” – Sammy John Cook

“Brilliant. I love Moolog.” – Margaret Plumtree

Kirsty E. Smith creates curious sculptural objects that are otherworldly, but at the same time strangely familiar. For Deep Space Moolog, she has made a new series of plinth-based works, placed in a constructed environment inspired by classic sci-fi sets – complete with spacerocks, crude scenery and printed lunar backdrop. 

However all is not as it seems; the images used in the backdrop are actually photographs taken in Derbyshire’s Creswell Crags, a system of caves, whose cave-art some believe was created over 40,000 years ago. Through this series of intriguing objects and settings, Kirsty weaves together elements of a forgotten past and an imagined future.

Join the artist for the official opening of the exhibition at the 20-21 Visual Arts Centre. Smith will be in the gallery between 1:00pm and 3:00pm to talk about the project, as well as give an informal tour around the unique, science-fiction inspired world she’s created.
