Elisabeth Weissensteiner’s new installation explores our continuous dance through time and space. Some taller than life-sized forms leap and skip through the gallery space, sculpted from fiberglass and brightly coloured polyester resin using a technique the artist has spent over eight years developing. Additionally, Weissensteiner presents a new video projection of black and white slowly moving images, which continue to explore the theme of fragments. Together the exhibition’s elements remind us that everything we perceive in our life is just a fragment of a larger whole. The places we inhabit, the people we meet, the things we are surrounded by, become part of a dance as we attempt to remain upright on this spinning ball of earth.
