Momentary obliterations, meditations and creations of a body. These practices play an important part in Ohni’s life and function as a survival strategy as a chronically ill and disabled non-binary person. These works explore ritual practices that create a collapsing of stable categories into a production of new truths.

Machines don’t have eyes but birds do is an exhibition of multi-disciplinary works by artists Alexandra Nemaric, Zoe Whitson, Jemi Gale, Alice Mcintosh and Lei Lei Kung. Machines don’t have eyes but birds do uses birds, buses and bread-sticks to explore senses of disorientation, isolation and disappointment to depict individual truths and autonomy through magic and imagination.
Collapse: Please, I just want to lie down explores the tedium of spending prolonged stretches of time in galleries and institutions and the artist’s developed habits for bearing the banality. As enthusiasm dwindles and time drags on, the body longs to lounge wherever it can. Boland’s practice attempts to utilise an affinity for idleness by developing an assortment of furnishings for supplementing the body’s desire for rest, in an effort to achieve a comfortably languorous experience.

Proliferating alongside developments in camera technology which have unleashed individuals with the ability to render once ethereal visions into concrete form. In the late 1950s, psychiatrist Carl Jung categorised UFOs and other such mass visions as the byproducts of a global psychic distress. Humanities cry for benevolent liberation from it’s earthly dilemmas that had resided itself in societies unconscious. Over recent years, such analysis has been in need of revisiting. Following the development of advanced imaging devices that, for the first time, have granted masses of individuals the ability to capture such entities.
