Sirius

Event Details

Artist: Thi Nguyen (Australia) 

Sirius is an installation that represents the brightest star in the Earth’s night sky, the sun that sits behind our sun, twice as big and 25 times more luminous.

According to ancient teachings, the star Sirius is associated with love and liberation. It has long been considered a source of our spiritual energy, bringing with it growth and change.

This installation visually depicts Sirius as an incredibly chaotic source of energy with abstract lines of light travelling back and forth. The mirrored centre represents transition from one state to another — a moment of change.

Country represented by installation: Australia
