Kirsty E. Smith creates curious sculptural objects that are otherworldly, but at the same time strangely familiar. For Deep Space Moolog, she has made a new series of plinth-based works, placed in a constructed environment inspired by classic sci-fi sets – complete with spacerocks, crude scenery and printed lunar backdrop.
However all is not as it seems; the images used in the backdrop are actually photographs taken in Derbyshire’s Creswell Crags, a system of caves, whose cave-art some believe was created over 40,000 years ago. Through this series of intriguing objects and settings, Kirsty weaves together elements of a forgotten past and an imagined future.
Deep Space Moolog has been created with the support of funding from The National Lottery through Arts Council England.
