Tomás Saraceno - Oceans of Air, Mona Museum (Tasmania), 2023
17 December 2022 — 24 July 2023

A companion publication to accompany Tomás Saraceno’s exhibition Oceans of Air at Mona, devoted to Leaf, Leaves, Life, Lives, a new commission created especially for the exhibition.

Leaf, Leaves, Life, Lives was inspired by Saraceno’s first visits to lutruwita / Tasmania, where he was struck by the intersections between the island’s plant life and that of its Aboriginal and colonial histories, which influenced its final form in the exhibition—a continuation of his work with leaves and other foliage, such as when he picked and pressed poppies growing from poisoned earth around his Berlin studio, built on the site of a former factory famous for making photographic film and dye.

The Oceans of Air book is available now HERE through Mona’s online shop!
