Hilary Jack’s solo show, The Late Great Planet Earth opens in September 2015 at Bury Sculpture Centre. Commissoned by curator Tony Trehy, this is the first exhibition by a UK artist in this internationally renowed art space.
For The Late Great Planet Earth Hilary Jack considers elegiac narratives of a pre-digital world and acknowledges contemporary anxieties over geopolitics, environmental change and rare celestial occurrences.
Through the manipulation of found images and objects Jack playfully envisions what the future holds for our planet in this year of The Blood Moon; a rare astrological event which is purported will trigger the beginning of the end of the world by modern day prophets in September 2015.
