Date: 21 March - 14 June 2020
Location: Kerry Gardner & Andrew Myer Project Gallery
Curator/s: Brooke Babington
Admission: Included with museum admission

Agnieszka Polska's recent digital media works have broadly investigated society's shared experiences of environmental and humanitarian catastrophe. In an era characterised by fluid concepts of truth, Polska uses fictional narrative devices such as artifice and myth to manipulate objective experiences of space and time.

The New Sun is part of the artist's video installation What the Sun Has Seen, which won the National Gallery Prize at the Hamburger Bahnhof, Berlin in 2017. This work will premiere in Australia at Heide Museum of Modern Art for PHOTO 2020.

The work features a projection of the sun personified as an animated character. Addressing the audience directly with crooning love songs, half-whispered monologues and affectionate jokes, it offers us empathy and understanding in an atmosphere of increasing emergency.
