Michaela Gleave‘s A Galaxy of Suns (2016-2018) transposes what is perhaps the most epic measure of time for humanity: the distance between earth and the universe. The work takes the form of a highly ambient field of colour and sound presented for an intimate audience via QT Melbourne‘s inhouse entertainment system. Like much of Gleave’s work, A Galaxy of Suns questions our relationship to time, matter and space. In content and context it oscillates between the micro and the macro, amid the spaces of personal experience and global understanding that allow us to experience the processes by which we comprehend reality and rethink our presence within it.
TIME is a new site-specific exhibition sector, curated by Hannah Mathews (Senior Curator, Monash University Museum of Art) and Rachel Ciesla (Curator, Melbourne Art Foundation).
