Elemental Systems, a solo exhibition by emerging artist India Kenning, explores the agency and vulnerability of the nonhuman. Working sensitively with natural elements from significant sites in Tasmania, the artist forms symbiotic relationships with her work through performative gestures of care and protection. Housed beneath Battery Point in the subterranean corridors of the historical site Princes Park Magazine, Elemental Systems presents ‘assembled landscapes’ of stone, ice and living matter. These fragments or micro-ecologies of Tasmania are a response to the artist’s connection to place and also prompt us to consider the fragility and ephemerality of the nonhuman.

Opening Event: Saturday 14th of March from 5.00pm, with activation of the artworks throughout the night
Exhibition continues: Saturday 14th - Wednesday 17th of March 11-3
Artist in conversation: Tuesday 16th of March 11.30am
Location: Princes Park Magazine, Battery Point.
