THE VERY busy Watson Arts Centre continues apace with a double exhibition unveiled by Greg Daly at the centre last night.
In “Static Glimpses,” the ceramic artists Bridget Anderson and Suzanne Oakman peer into a futuristic surreal new world where genetically modified plants and animals exist.
Their work takes as its premise the fact that, because of man’s intervention, the process of evolution has rapidly sped up and taken a new twist with the splicing of genes and mixing of species, so that through a combination of science, health, nutrition and imagination, the future possibilities are endless.
Visitors to the exhibition, the centre hopes, will be “intrigued by what the artists have glimpsed in their future world and encouraged to explore their own imaginings of other future new worlds”.
“Static Glimpses” at Watson Arts Centre, Aspinall Street, Watson, Thursday to Sunday 10am – 4pm until October 20.
“We'll End Up Together” is a film that belongs to François Cluzet as Max, in a great performance in a happy-ender made more credible by the close shaves traversed before arriving there, says movie reviewer DOUGAL MACDONALD.
