EXHIBITIONS    Brodie Ellis > Heavy Launch, 2019

7 September > 10 November 2019   Image: Brodie Ellis, Heavy Launch [film still], 2019.  Image courtesy of the artist.

 

Brodie Ellis will present a video, sculpture and sound installation. This installation will contain beautifully abstracted still fragments of dozens of rocket launches blended together in a fluid animation that focuses on jet propulsion and the burning of resources. The sculptural components reference design elements of SpaceX's Falcon Heavy, the most powerful operational rocket in the world, which holds contracts with the U.S defence force. Ellis' work will distil the vessel to its essence through rendering in white clay, pine, linen and bitumen.
