‘an exhibition that you won’t want to miss’ –Inspiring City on Heather Lander’s Nearer Future

Two Sonica favourites come together for the first time, as visual artist Heather Lander and musician and composer Alex Smoke present Primordial Waters. Noting how advances in science and technology seem to be turning our attention ever further away from the natural world, the artists seek to remind audiences of our most fundamental history: our common origins in water. Beginning from an elevated perspective, Primordial Waters gradually draws audiences closer into its mesmerising weather-pattern swirl of mists and water, the pull of tides, the movement of water that’s sometimes calm and sometimes tempestuous. The effect is mesmerising and meditative – a reminder to slow down, remember our place in the world, and commemorate the natural laws that bind us to our planet.

‘compelling, thoroughly absorbing’ – The Quietus on Alex Smoke & Florence To’s Etanan

Contains flashing lights and loud music
