Date: 2 November 2019 1 March 2020
Location: Heide Galleries
Curator/s: Jaklyn Babington (National Gallery of Australia)
Admission: Included with Museum Pass

With their pioneering use of virtual reality, artists Jess Johnson and Simon Ward have created an immersive installation in which Johnson's drawings have been transformed from analogue to digital. A mysterious universe of alien architecture, humanoid clones and cryptic symbols will open up to the viewer via a cyber network of travellators and gateways.

Terminus presents a quest, a choose-your-own adventure into the technological. Prepare yourself for a slippage of time and space as your journey propels you through spectacular cyber narratives: you will pass through Fleshold Crossing; take respite in Known Unknown; lose yourself within Scumm Engine; bravely face impending danger in the tower of Gog & Magog; and experience the brink of sensory overload in the psychedelic scenes of Tumblewych. A number of drawings and textile works by Jess Johnson especially selected for Heide are also on display.

Please note: This exhibition is very popular. If you are planning to visit on the weekend we advise coming early in the day (10am-12pm) to avoid queues. Alternatively, plan your visit for a week day when the galleries are quieter. Allow at least one hour to experience all of the five VR stations. Expect longer wait times during school holidays.
