GARY CARSLEY: SCIENCEFICTIVE at the Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane

May 31, 2014

The Institute of Modern Art is pleased to present the new installation Sciencefictive by Brisbane-born, Sydney-based established artist Gary Carsley. This immersive project transforms two galleries into an interior garden, seen through apertures, or Moongates, that puncture the white walls of the gallery. As visitors follow a path laid throughout the galleries, they will encounter these Moongates, which serve as windows onto gardens from around the world. These are displayed in the IMA galleries in a physical relationship to each other that they would have if Brisbane were the centre of the world. The entire work therefore functions as a giant mappa mundi, and encourages us to contemplate the complex balance between social construct, geography, and flora that characterises gardens. While today’s gardens are typically produced by landscape architects, Carsley suggests an affinity between the process of conceiving and creating a garden and that of the artist—bringing land, sea, and sky together into evocative spaces that offer journeys and compel reflection.
