There are only a few days left to view this captivating exhibition at Phoenix Gallery, Brighton. The New Immortals is curated by Eastbourne artist and Blue Monkey member, Judith Alder and features work from Alder and nine other artists, all exploring ideas around immortality and scientific advances in the prolonging of life.
‘Could indefinite human life become a reality? Would we really want to live forever? and What difference would it make if we never died?’
Through installations, film, photography, sound and print, the exhibition draws one in with careful scene setting, invites us to be 'De Conditioned' from our established notions, presents science fact and the theoretical fringes, and takes us to possible futures through our own imaginings.
Deeply intriguing and at times disturbing, but with moments of humour and beauty this is that incredible form of art which encourages and enables an engagement with some of the most difficult subject matter facing society today; calling us to question our own beliefs and moralities.
