Man & Wah’s creative practice is an attempt to inspire reconnection with the dimensions of nature and the cosmos, elements that greatly influence their creative work and lives. Their artworks are an invitation to slow down and reflect on the interconnectedness between humans and the universe in its micro and macro states. CELESTON II extends on a video work Man & Wah developed during Museum of Brisbane’s ‘Artists @ Home’ residency program, during the COVID-19 lockdown in early 2020. The work was informed by Man & Wah’s attempt to make sense of the unfolding global events and the mass flow of information that accompanied them. It examines how the past and present can mould ideas, beliefs and social structures, and how digital information is controlled to induce human reactions.
The gallery is open and practicing COVID-19 social distancing measures. The exhibition can also be viewed online here.
