Seven Trumpets at Strange Neighbour

Opening this Friday night at Strange Neighbour in Fitzroy is the exhibition 'Seven Trumpets'

featuring: Peter Booth / Dominic Kavanagh / David Mutch / Izabela Pluta/ Michael Schlitz / Sam Shmith / Anne Scott Wilson curated by David-Ashley Kerr

The artworks in this exhibition depict images of dystopian futures, present catastrophes, while others hint at some failed utopian past. Exploring landscapes in ruin, prophesised retribution and a reduction of the world into visceral signs of civilisation in decline, there remains a sense of the rise of the natural, but ultimately, failure of humanity.
