Join us at NorthSite for the opening event of Exploring Giant Molecules and a special performance by the artist Sandra Selig.

Exploring Giant Molecules is the largest solo exhibition of Queensland artist Sandra Selig, bringing together key examples of her interdisciplinary projects from the past two decades.

Selig works at the intersection of visual art and experimental music, using humble materials such as thread, paper, light and sound to articulate intangible notions of form, space and time.

The exhibition presents seven projects that address the dominant concerns, materials and forms of Selig’s ongoing bodies of work, including the artist’s pendulum salt drawings that transform throughout the exhibition. Also included is a new thread installation that responds to the gallery’s architecture and spider webs captured on paper—projects that have evolved organically over time and in response to the spaces Selig works and exhibits in.
