A meditation on the expansive and intricate magnificence of the natural world.
In this exhibition of 2D works, Lux Eterna creates a series of ink drawn and hand foiled works on paper, which are amplifications of her personal meditative and embodied experiences when immersed in vast expanses or intimate pockets of landscapes respectively. Her detailed and delicate ink work, points at the immensity of Earth’s time-scale, making obvious a slow, gentle and granular being materialised on paper. These meditatively minute markings communicate a long duration wherein the artist is able to recapture the subtle resonances she assimilates in situ. In acknowledging such cellular-like detail, her works invite us to consider the magnitude and gracious endurance of our non-human world, before we spawned and long after we go.
Lux Eterna’s practice focuses on encouraging post and trans-human futures that are augmented by sensitivity, imagination and the embodied gaze. Lux asks questions around human subordination to technology without deeper understanding of our bodies. Her collaborative work investigates decolonisation as community dialogue and co-divining un-settling practices, for the scribing of more inclusive and non-colonial futures. Lux is also further researching around how we may re-author language, for a more relational reciprocity with our non-human world.
