Colliding Worlds is an allegory of modern times, where ‘difference’ and the unavoidable collision of competing ideas and values threaten the natural order.

The works in Colliding Worlds feature very different mediums – sculpture, animation, new-media, painting and installation – and works by leading Samstag alumni Pia Borg, Nicholas Folland, Hayden Fowler and Shaun Kirby as well as Patricia Piccinini and Anna Platten.

The exhibition is a feature event of the 2009 Come Out Festival program, whose overall theme – Colliding Worlds – is inspired by a 1932 science fiction novel by Philip Wylie (When Worlds Collide) which tells the story of two fictional rogue planets that enter our solar system and cause catastrophic damage and the end of civilisation.
