Experience some of the most immersive and expansive artworks in the Art Gallery of NSW collection. Opening 14 July, ‘Spackemakers and roomshakers’ will feature large-scale room installations by Nike Savvas as well as Kathy Temin and Ernesto Neto.
Savvas’ ‘Atomic: full of love, full of wonder’ is comprised of a shimmering haze of vibrating coloured balls, suggesting the very atoms that are the fundamental structural units of all things. Through carefully calibrated design, Savvas transforms the gallery exhibition space into a horizon line of coloured particles and a mesmerising optical field.
Employing light, sound, fabric, air, and spices, the artworks in ‘Spacemakers and roomshakers’ use the space of the gallery as a medium to be filled, tested, stretched, altered and above all energised by viewers. The exhibition opens on Saturday 14 July and will continue until October in the contemporary galleries at the Art Gallery of NSW.
