"The Nature of Falling Light"
Opening Thurs 31 Oct, 6pm
Exhibition runs Fri 25 Oct – Sat 16 Nov
Open Tuesday – Friday 10am – 5pm, Saturday 11am – 3pm
Imagine a future where we have to reconstruct the world from an incomplete set of Earth’s pieces – substituting nature to suit a cracked version of humanity in a puzzle of blind vanity.
Angela Casey’s "The Nature of Falling Light" adopts the visual aesthetics and symbolism of Dutch Vanitas painting and Victorian era culture while exploring current global environmental and existential issues.
Angela’s photographic still life images feature a combination of objects – some sourced from museums and private collections, others from disposable and recyclable popular culture.
These works present us with a powerful warning. Our insatiable hunger is hurtling us towards an increasingly dystopian world. Hedonism has run out of credit.
It is time for us to change the ending of this story.
Sat 16 Nov, 1pm
Join Angela for Conversations. This is a free, casual event where you can meet artists currently exhibiting at MAC and hear more about the stories behind their work.

"Drink Me, Eat Me".
The freefall of time is a curious journey into the unknowing stream of history. A descent into a dark and chaotic place that you only know by observing the walls of the rabbit hole. The dark and strange fortunes of Tasmania’s Port Arthur site early history are often told in the dark gritty soil like leaves at the bottom of the tea cup. This eludes to a gothic party of tragic and dangerous characters played against the backdrop of a harsh disorienting and intriguing location. The weight of history and time has an endless appetite an unquenchable thirst.

"The Future of Light #2" 2017
68.43 H x 108 W cm
Birds feature as surrogates for human presence in the exploration of the tension between the global environment and the human condition during tenancy in this world of noise.
Black is the colour of silence, providing a quiet envelope for the contemplation of the narrative.
Residencies during 2017 at Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery and Port Arthur Historic Site Management Authority with the assistance of Arts Tasmania have resulted in work which will feature in two solo shows this year at Poimena Gallery and Devonport Regional Gallery.
The native and endemic birds of Tasmania feature as surrogates for the human occupation in Exit which explores the state of the human condition during tenancy in this world and the residual presence that remains thereafter.
Black is the colour of silence, providing a quiet envelope for the contemplation of the narrative within this world of noise.

Arts Tasmania by the Minister for the Arts. This series features items from the Visual Arts and Natural Sciences Collections of QVMAG, Launceston and also Port Arthur Historic Site Management Authority.

The Expedition (with an Athrotaxis Selaginoides Halo)
The hedonism of contemporary life depicted as the drive through meal and the four litre cask disguised as something more luxurious. Our attention is diverted from industry’s insatiable hunger which will push us as a society ever forward in search for new resources, which will one day be just out of reach and outside of comfort.
The halo is a discarded remnant of industry, made from Athrotaxis Selaginoides (commonly known as King Billy pine), an endemic Tasmanian tree species. Once abundant, it is now listed as vulnerable and has declined 40% over the last 200 years.
