In extremis was an exhibition exploring climate extremes, shown at Arts House, Melbourne’s centre for contemporary performance, in November 2017.
Climatic extremes are the new meteorological normal for our planet. This screen-and-audiobased exhibition offers human, interspecies, plant and geological perspectives, and visceral experiences of the fragility, resilience and collapse of systems and ecologies. in extremis is lightning storms, dry winds, urban heathaze and contorted railway lines; parched riverbeds and flooded cities; panting, sweating, fainting and hallucinating.
Exhibiting artists included Leah Barclay; Daniel Browning; Madeleine Flynn, Tim Humphrey & Jen Hector; Jill Orr; Zoe Scoglio; Latai Taumoepeau; and wāni.
