Leeroy New - Carapace Desert Facemask

Regular price $1,020.00 Sale

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.

The harsh desert conditions, lack of water and giant sandworms on Arrakis create a need for unique defense mechanisms. The native Fremen people wear ‘stillsuits’ that turn the body's moisture, sweat and urine into drinking water they can sip through a tube in the suit’s neck. Artist Leeroy New’s Desert Facemask can also be worn to absorb moisture from the face.
