High Loom: Lisa Sammut
Monday 26 August 2019
High Loom is a monumental installation by Lisa Sammut that reflects on the movement and interaction of celestial bodies in space. Observed from multiple viewing points in the Casula Powerhouse Turbine Hall, the artist plays with suspended sculpture, light and video to create a performance or dance between lunar, solar and planetary objects, while using motion as a way to examine the relationship with cosmic time and space.
Giant Leap is a multi-arts program of events and exhibitions, marking the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission and the landing of the first humans on the moon in 1969.
The Giant Leap exhibition program includes: Memories of the Moon Landing in the Marsden Gallery; High Loom large-scale installation in the Turbine Hall by Lisa Sammut; Astronaut in the Switch Gallery; Future in the Upper Turbine Gallery; and, Under the Same Moon in the Hopper Gallery and fun, interactive activities in the Kids Gallery.
