Catherine Truman - Shared Reckonings - Artist Talks
Catherine Truman is a South Australian artist who works across an intriguing selection of the disciplines of art, ophthalmology and botany. Truman has embarked on a quest to explore the role that light plays in human vision and the growth of plants. Her art has been influenced by powerful themes: the catastrophic bushfires that swept the country last summer, climate change-induced biodiversity loss, and the global pandemic.
This exhibition comprises five installations of objects, some that are photoluminescent, and eight experimental films. Shared Reckonings, which is also part of the 2021 Adelaide Festival is described as 'a mesmerising and creative response to research undertaken at both the Botanic Gardens and State Herbarium and the Flinders Centre for Ophthalmology at Flinders University.'
