Terraformed is an exhibition of paper-based works exploring phenomena that mark the Anthropocene—a geological epoch registering the planetary impact of humankind. Terraformed examines the altered contemporary landscapes and climate of Earth and touches on some of the cultural experiences that come with change. With a strong focus on topography, Terraformed maps the reality of humanity’s rising consciousness of our entanglement within ecosystems and geology, defying the common preconception that nature is something that is separate or parallel to the human experience.
Featured works include a laser-cut paper installation of juxtaposed topographies, experimental carbon and water drawings and distorted climate graphs—contributing to a broad dialogue that canvasses environmental, cultural, philosophical and political spheres.
Louise Morgan is a Sydney-based emerging artist whose practice engages in experimental drawing and installation. Her works are informed by ecology and a desire to address the cultural and philosophical issues that determine humankind’s influence on the planet and its various environments. She is a recent MFA research graduate from the National Art School and has previously been awarded the Mark Henry Cain Memorial Scholarship and selected for the Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts’ ‘Hatched’ exhibition in 2015.
