HTTP.PARADISE is a virtual exhibition and immersive experience in digital realms. Presented via the Incinerator Gallery website, this exhibition explores positions in video art, music video and hypnotic moving images that imagine alternative visions for the future. During a time of physical distancing and global concerns of community health, HTTP.PARADISE connects radical narratives as a means to explore contemporary politics, autonomy, spirituality and identity. Within a dystopian present, the promise of paradise is questioned, paving way for social change and communal evolution, where we may empathetically and collectively engage through virtual worlds.

ARTIST & CURATOR TALK
Saturday 15 May, 2pm
Join Incinerator Gallery curator Jake Treacy and exhibiting artists for a virtual walk-through of the new online exhibition HTTP.PARADISE.
Presented via digital live-stream, this conversation will guide listeners through dystopian worlds, exploring contemporary politics, themes of identity, avatars, spirituality, and places where paradise is just beyond arms-reach. Considering a time of global health concern and physical distancing, these artists employ video art, music video, video gaming and moving image as a way to communicate larger issues and forge social connectivity.
This exhibition was conceived in response to the 2020 global health pandemic of coronavirus COVID-19. Considering the health and safety of community and the temporary closure of Incinerator Gallery, this exhibition is presented via the gallery website, and can be accessed here until 7 June 2020.
