Forbidden Planet

Four artists who examine a relationship between science-fiction and the landscape.

Originally written in 1952 as a story by Irving Block and Allen Adler titled Fatal Planet, Forbidden Planet is a science-fiction film set in the 23rd century presenting a group of explorers sent on a mission to the Planet Altair IV to investigate the fate of an earlier expedition.

Forbidden Planet was the first science fiction film entirely set on another planet in deep space far away from planet Earth, and it contributed to developing our collective shared unconscious of the genre of science fiction.

Better known as a painter, Julian Grater presents in this exhibition previously unseen photographs from his research expeditions.

In Tom Ormond's paintings, architectural forms and spaces are defined by light.

Stewart Gough's sculptures negotiate the redundancy of the plinth as a mode of display, integrating work and plinth as one object unified by the synthetic veneer of a laminate finish.

Chris Hawtin's paintings centre around technological acceleration; the characteristic which defines our times.
