Balnaves Contemporary Intervention Series: Jess Johnson and Simon Ward

Exhibition and Shows

4 May 2018 to 26 Aug 2018

Embrace the unexpected as exciting contemporary art disrupts and transforms spaces throughout the NGA. In partnership with the Balnaves Foundation, artists present daring, large-scale experiences and re-imagine the concept of an art gallery. Experience contemporary art with immersive interventions that engage, challenge and inspire.

Login to Jess Johnson and Simon Ward’s Terminus — an immersive ‘world within a world’ where dimensional realities exist in both physical and virtual space. In Terminus, Ward collaborates with Johnson to re-imagine her densely layered 2D artworks as hypnotic animated video and unique virtual reality experiences. Positioned within an elaborate floor map, five virtual reality stations act as portals into five different realms. Take a journey through a wormhole into worlds where the connections between language, science fiction, culture and technology are explored.
