Imants Tillers: As soon as tomorrow

November 26, 2021 - December 18, 2021

Imants Tillers, Apocalypse, 2021. Synthetic polymer paint, gouache on 24 canvasboards, nos. 127 x 177.8cm. Courtesy: the artist and Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery, Sydney.

It all began with the shock of a fire in 2019 which destroyed Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris. Could this have been a portent of the coming apocalypse?

The devastating fires in Eastern Australia followed soon after, only to be eclipsed by a plague which is still with us. How to navigate the end times? Tormented as we are by a deluge of strident and chaotic opinion.

Where are today’s philosophers? Keeping vigil? Keeping us sane? Giving us wise counsel? Revelation? As Friedrich Nietzsche once wrote about his honourable and now underrated calling: “WE, WHOSE TASK IS PRECISELY TO BE AWAKE”.
Imants Tillers, 11 November 2021

Opening night 26 November 6 – 8pm
