Featuring sculpture and moving image, the show is full of absurd, playful materialism and visual non-sequiturs. For instance, the video work ‘Destiny’, in which a cartoonish medieval sword is viewed in first person perspective racing across barren highways in the Australian countryside. As writer Jack Willet notes in the catalogue essay, the exhibition’s strangeness is a “collision of presentness, fused with the past (alongside nostalgia/memory), speculative futures and parallel timelines”.**
