Paul E Mason’s exhibition, Climate Anxiety Ark, exploits the language of the museum through meticulously crafted sculptures that reference reliquaries, automatas and dioramas. These objects expose the museum as an apologist for colonialism, and its cloistered artefacts alternately as a source of unequivocal truth or frivolous, illusory spectacle. Interpretive and design tropes and famous museum objects are reimagined and reframed to expose the privileging of Western over Indigenous knowledge systems. Combining dissonant visual elements from the past and present, the artist connects the colonial legacy of dispossession and exploitation to the current reality of an unfolding climate disaster.

Exhibition open 10:00am-4:00pm, Wed-Sat.
