The event takes place in two parts:
The first part takes place at the Fondation Opale in Lens, and the second part at the François-Xavier Bagnoud Observatory in St Luc, Val d’Anniviers.

The INTERSTELLAIRE exhibition invites us to explore the unknown and push back the limits of our imagination. Bringing together some sixty works by contemporary Aboriginal and international artists (installations, paintings, sculptures, photographs and videos), the exhibition offers a perspective on our relationship with the universe and leads us to question the meaning of our place in our galaxy.

During the event Jackson will share The Constellation and The Cloud – two ongoing works that explore celestial, indistinct and nebulous phenomena.
The Constellation is an ever-expanding painting of deep space. A single painting made from a multitude of parts, each part contains an image of a star forming.
The Cloud is an incomplete painting of atmospheric space – the painting aims to occupy a vast space of unfixed dimensions – existing in a state of partial obscurity – geographically dispersed yet interrelated.
TSOEG artists will then open a discussion around their current fieldwork for ‘We are the Weathers’ – with a focus on their experiences, discoveries and navigation of the cultural frameworks that shape our visions and experiences of place.
