Sissy Reyes is proud to present her solo show 'The Martians are Coming!' As an associate exhibitor for Head On Photo Festival 2017.
Featured in the online galleries of the UK's ‘FORMAT Festival 2017: Habitat’, the international ‘Lens Culture Emerging talents Awards 2016’, and supported by the Ian Potter Cultural Trust Emerging artist Grant and the Arts NSW Artist Grant by the National Association for the Visual Arts, this cinematic series will be held at Gaffa Gallery 281 Clarence St, Sydney, from 25th May to 5th June.
‘The Martians are coming!’ is an exploration of time, place and presence in today’s information-rich existence. As our everyday interactions become dominated by our dependancy on digital technology, we paradoxically alienate ourselves in our devices while trying to connect with others, yet ceasing to connect with the ‘here and now’ even when in complete solitude. Are we ever present? Through this premise and inspired by her love of SciFi, Reyes sets out to depict reimagined moments of solitude and presence, celebrating them as rare an occasion as an encounter with an alien life form.
