Post Natural History (Archeology of the future) Vincent Fournier

Mixing history and anticipation, memory and science fiction, the Post Natural History project shows a collection of ‘upcoming species’ based upon synthetic biology and cybernetics.

Presented in the style of Cabinet of curiosity, with it’s uncanny but also familiar beauty; this poetic and sensitive bestiary questions our relationship to nature and technology. The exhibition consists of photographic images and SLS prints (3D).
French born artist, Vincent Fournier regularly exhibits his work in international galleries and festivals and his work can be found in public and private art collections such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, permanent collection (New York), LVMH Contemporary Art Collection in Paris, MAST Foundation in Bologna, The Schlumberger-Primat Collection and The Baccarat Art Collection in New York.

Decolonist Katie West

How can we undo the damage done by colonialism? What could it mean for us as individuals? Through reflecting on the impact of colonisation upon her sense of self as an Aboriginal woman, Katie West has developed her own method of decolonisation. Decolonist is a space to experience West’s personal meditation practice, where breathing out the traumas of colonisation and breathing in a decolonised state of mind can give life to philosophy and action that might dominate a new decolonised Australian reality.

Katie West is an emerging artist and Yindjibarndi woman who has lived her life on Noongar Yued and Noongar Whadjuk countries. West’s artistic practice is shaped by her family’s experience of the Stolen Generations, studies in sociology and work experience in the area of Indigenous health. This will be the artists first solo exhibition in Western Australia.
