After by emerging Adelaide-based artist Kasia Tons is a solo exhibition of textiles and photography. Kasia uses textiles to create soft sculptures, 2D works, and wearables that explore personal narratives with universal themes such as home, identity, constructive chaos, and interpersonal relationships. Kasia has been inspired by the little-known E.M Forster novella The Machine Stops (1909) which describes a futuristic society where a machine which sustains daily life suddenly stops.
This beautifully conceived and delightfully quirky exhibition explores a time after technology has thrived. After the technology dies, the hole that is left is filled with creative entertainment and expressions, reminiscent of times gone past.
