‘Flame Seed’ is a Willoughby City Council curated exhibition that reimagines the old furnace door of the Incinerator Art Space as a portal to ‘other worlds’.  It presents a group of eight artists whose artwork explores fantasy, futuristic spaces and surreal ideas and actions. The Incinerator’s furnace door once opened onto a combustion furnace, but now sits disabled on a gallery wall.

In this exhibition, the door is fancifully conceived in an ‘Alice down the rabbit hole’ or ‘Narnia through the wardrobe’ capacity, suggesting worlds that could potentially exist upon opening.  Offering a survey of contemporary approaches to surrealism and fantasy, the exhibition presents hybrid beings, poetic imaginings and farfetched places.

ARTISTS: Tara Marynowsky, Adam Norton, Denese Oates, Louis Pratt, Samuel Quinteros, Kate Rohde, Linda Seiffert and Agus Wijaya.
