Guan Wei: The Divine Comedy

October 17, 2019 - November 10, 2019

Guan Wei, Divine Comedy 12, 2019. Acrylic on linen, quadriptych, 130 x 218cm. Courtesy: the artist and Martin Browne Contemporary, Sydney.

 

Martin Browne Contemporary presents The Divine Comedy, the latest exhibition by Guan Wei. The artworks featured in this exhibition are based on various strange constellations in ancient Mythology that also find parallels in contemporary science and technology. Wei expresses these in the artworks through the use of geometric symbols – the interstellar tracings of lines, circles, spirals, and arcs. Rectangles symbolise black holes and dark matter, while diamond and quadrilateral shapes reference information and communication. Together with astronauts, spaceships, and constellations of various magical creatures, it is like one grand symphony that illustrates the Divine Comedy of humanity stepping out into the Universe and exploring outer space.

 

Exhibition opens 6–8pm Thursday 17 October 2019
