From 1 - 30 Dec 2017, Kult Gallery transformed into the planet Arrakis from the sci-fi cult favourite novel by Frank Herbert, Dune. The works of over 15 artists across disciplines are at Dune: A Sci-fi Art Show. An air of surrealism honors these artworks on view, coupled with a renewed belief in art as a tool to further the stories of science. The works essentially fold fact into fantasy and can be interpreted as relics, tributes and results of Frank Herbert’s Dune philosophy. The exhibition is also a timely reminder in the context of many current issues including oil conflicts in the Middle East, medical experimentations to prolong life and intellectual conferences on the future of Artificial Intelligence.
Artist: Didier ‘Jaba’ Mathieu (SG)
Spray paint on canvas, 2017
140 x 165 cm
The cunning head of the House, Baron Vladimir Harkonnen, uses torture, murder and slavery to maintain power. He openly flaunts his morbidly obese body and because his weight does not enable him to walk, Didier Jaba Mathieu’s mural and canvas piece retains his mobility by floating him mid-air with the aid of belt-mounted suspenders.
