Apr 9 - Jun 14, 2020
Eduardo Navarro's work moves away from representation, creating instead sensorial experiences with the potential to induce a radical transformation of the self and others. His exhibition at Gasworks will transform the gallery into a living, breathing organism that inhales air from the street and pumps it back into public space. Acting as a large-scale prosthetic device, the installation invites viewers to synchronise their breath, metabolism and biorhythms with the architecture itself and other members of the audience. With a simple gesture, Navarro’s exhibition offers the possibility of entering a telepathic community, a shared space-time of experience.

Gala Porras-Kim's work traces the global circulation of ancient precolonial artefacts extracted from their original sites and stored in museums and private collections, exploring how the definitions and possibilities of these objects change in response to each context. Departing from official replicas of the monoliths recently found inside the Pyramid of the Sun in Teotihuacan, Mexico, her exhibition at Gasworks unravels the many worlds colliding in these powerful stones, from international copyright laws to cosmologies, stars and forces greater than us.

Acclaimed for their science-fiction political thrillers set against a backdrop of racialised police brutality and mass surveillance, their films combine camcorder footage and pro-shot video, digital animation and drone imaging. Multiple sources and formats are weaved together into a kaleidoscopic experience that subverts traditional forms of storytelling through the excavation of subterranean histories and the engagement with indigenous worldviews, queer energies and minoritarian politics.
