Watch Before Going To Sleep is a new video installation by Brisbane-based artist Marisa Georgiou. In altering the editing process of digital landscape photography, Georgiou examines the way we surround ourselves with aestheticised, contrived and mediated versions of ‘nature’ in order to feel grounded and connected. In doing so, she draws connections between mythologised notions of environmental authenticity and Western expectations of the sublime landscape, whilst asking whether the manufactured aspect of spiritual experience in the online environment has bearing on its legitimacy.
Exhibition runs from 8-30 April 2017 with the gallery open 10am-4pm Monday to Friday, 10-3 Saturday and 11-4 Sunday.
