This article was produced in collaboration with Samstag Museum of Art.

Across both levels of the museum, view two spellbinding multi-screen moving image works by acclaimed artist and filmmaker Isaac, whoc is world-renowned for arresting works that bring together baroque pageantry and metaphor.

Teasing out stories of identity, migration and parallel histories, ‘Ten Thousand Waves’ and ‘A Marvellous Entanglement’ uncover the echoes of recent and ancient pasts in our contemporary culture.

Set against Khai Liew’s ambitious exhibition design, Helen Fuller’s hand-built terracotta objects are curious and inventive. Driven by intuition and material she approaches ceramics in a manner she likens to painting, concerned with the characteristics of form rather than function.

Read as a single work of installation, this exhibition invites us to the moonlit garden of Fuller’s distinctive imagination.
