PLANE + HORIZON
15 September to 7 October 2017
In this new exhibition, Plane + Horizon, visual artist Rebekah Pryor imagines maternal and vegetal bodies as territories of love and lament, and as map-like portals and sacred icons. Her mixed media and salt installation works respond to the thinking of philosopher Luce Irigaray and her proposal of a new and ethical 'cultural horizon' that respects difference, remembers the mother and the vegetal world, and can emerge only through 'loving thought'.
Plane + Horizon is the culmination of Rebekah Pryor’s practice-led PhD research, recently undertaken at the VCA’s Centre For Ideas.
