Emmy award winning production Collisions will debut as the first virtual reality exhibition to be featured at the Main Corner and Riddoch Art Gallery, with an exclusive preview on Thursday 18 January 2018 at 5:30pm.
City of Mount Gambier Arts Culture and Development Officer Serena Wong encourages the community to put on a headset for an exclusive view of Lynette Wallworth’s virtual reality work, Collisions.
“It is a collision of culture, technology and storytelling which takes us on a virtual reality journey to the homeland of indigenous elder Nyarri Morgan and the Martu tribe in remote Western Australian Pilbara desert and his first, devastating introduction to the Western world,” Ms Wong said.
The story outlines Nyarri’s first taste of Western civilisation during Australia’s first atomic tests in the 1950s.
“It offers us a view to what he saw, and in reflecting on this extraordinary event, Nyarri shares his perspective on the Martu way to care for the planet.”
Collisions will run until 9 February 2018. The exhibition is free but bookings are essential due to limited seats. Please contact the Main Corner to book on (08) 8721 2563.
