 Christopher Langton: Colony

Image1

Description

Melbourne artist Christopher Langton presents Colony, a new whole-of-gallery sculptural installation.

Featuring two enormous mechanoid, astronautical figures and a galaxy field in the shape of a viral apocalypse, Colony speaks to the genre of sci-fi alien invasion narratives that are often reduced into a single ultimatum – conquer or be conquered.

Taking ideas from science fiction about space colonisation, and organisms from the microscopic world of viruses, bacteria and fungi, Colony asks us to consider that we are all multi-cellular symbiotic organisms, negotiating a shared ecology.
