Elizabeth Thomson | Cellular Memory

Saturday December 9, 2017 to Monday April 2, 2018
Aratoi, Masterton

Curated by Gregory O’Brien

For over three decades, Elizabeth Thomson’s art has engaged with issues to do with science, imagination, culture and, increasingly, what it means to live in the South Pacific in the 21st century. Thomson’s art has been described, variously, as hypnotic, intense, soothing, transformative and magical. The works in Elizabeth Thomson – Cellular Memory speak of such timely concerns as global warming, over-fishing of oceans, pollution and environmental degradation.

The exhibition is accompanied by a highly illustrated publication with contributions from Gregory O’Brien, Lloyd Jones and Jenny Bornholdt.
