Adam Norton’s fascination with space travel and the effects of technology on the human condition are explored in this mid-career survey. My Trip to Mars will transform the gallery into a fanciful replica of the Martian surface populated by the artist’s speculative artifacts, from space suits and flags to a full-scale dwelling designed for short-term habitation on our planet’s nearest neighbour. The speculative drive of science fiction is combined with the artistic impulse of experimentation in this exhibition that invites the viewer to be the explorer.
