‘Air’ showcases immersive and large-scale works by leading international and Australian artists exploring the cultural, ecological and political dimensions of air.
Presented across the entire ground floor of GOMA, the exhibition will be a journey through this invisible, ethereal and vital element, reflecting on awareness of our shared atmosphere as life-giving, potentially dangerous and rapidly warming.
‘Air’ features Collection favourites including Ron Mueck’s monumental human sculpture In bed, Anthony McCall’s solid-light installation Crossing and Jonathan Jones’ lyrical evocation of wind, breath and bird call, untitled (giran).
Tomás Saraceno’s floating work Drift: A cosmic web of thermodynamic rhythms anchors the exhibition with a sequence of 13 large suspended spheres, partly mirrored and partly transparent, with some remaining still and others in subtle vertical motion.
