About

Taking John McCracken's minimalist sculptural ‘planks' and their apocryphal quasi-religious appearance in Stanley Kubrick's '2001: A Space Odyssey' as a starting point, the exhibition considers the science fiction Monolith (of Kubrick / Arthur C Clarke) as one such transcendent sculptural object. ‘Tomb, Shrine, Survey-Marker, Spare-Part' is the second in the series ‘Sci-Fi Paganism', a programme exploring mythological communications between artists and thinkers with real/imagined extra-terrestrial life forms through their sincere cultural practices of the 1960s/70s counterculture. Part 1 of Sci-Fi Paganism, The Starseed Transmission took place at Enclave in September 2013 and featured Sovay Berriman, Rowena Harris, Dean Kenning Inࠪs Rebelo and Plastique Fantastique. https://www.facebook.com/events/348903601908095/ Supported by the Arts Council England.
