Exhibition: “The Nature of Falling Light” by Angela Casey

Exhibition and Shows

25 Oct 2019 to 16 Nov 2019

Angela Casey’s photographs feature a curious combination of objects – some sourced from museums and private collections, others from disposable and recyclable popular culture.
Her exhibition at Moonah Arts Centre constructs a dystopian narrative, imagining a future in which we have to reconstruct the world from an incomplete set of Earth’s pieces. Nature is substituted out for, and combined with, human-made objects in these unsettling compositions.
Angela’s exhibition, titled “The Nature of Falling Light”, adopts the visual aesthetics and symbolism of Dutch Vanitas painting and Victorian era culture. Angela’s workplaces this narrative squarely in the present, exploring current global environmental and existential issues.
These artworks present us with a powerful warning. Our insatiable hunger is hurtling us towards an increasingly dystopian world. Hedonism has run out of credit. It is time for us to change the ending of this story.
“The Nature of Falling Light” is on display at Moonah Arts Centre from 25 October until 16 November. The official opening is on Thursday 31 October at 6 pm. Angela will present an artist talk about her show on Saturday 16 November at 1 pm. Entry to the exhibition and associated events are free and all are welcome.
