Moon Garden, 3D render, 2021, Josee Vesely-Manning

Deep Fake / Moon Garden Past Event

Presented by Josee Vesely-Manning

Uneasy utopias and anthropocenic space gardens are central to this sculptural installation: landscape design for uninhabitable planets, interior design for planetary greenhouses and strange materialisms which engage with actant matter and enlivened non-human forms. Of central interest is how our architectural and design past has envisaged the future.

Counter cultural aesthetics and propositions, such as Ettore Sottsass’ The Planet as Festival (1972-73) or the cosmic sets of Alejandro Jodorowsky’s Holy Mountain (1973) and specifically a nostalgia on how we remember the future, all inform this project.

Deep Fake/ Moon Garden also alludes to contemporary end of time predictions, current environmental/ viral crisis and new world making projections.

Josee Vesely-Manning

Josee Vesely-Manning is a visual artist who often works with sculptural installation and more recently lighting and object design. In her practice she explores themes of environmental degradation and material obsolescence within an invented and idiosyncratic universe of magic and anarchy. Enlivened matter and effluvia are also ongoing investigations. Her performance background and growing up within a travelling circus family is a recurring motif. She has worked for several years predominantly in Melbourne and Sydney, Australia, and has delivered projects and exhibitions for a diverse range of galleries, festivals and funding bodies including The Australia Council, Arts Victoria, The City of Port Philip Cultural Development Fund, The City of Melbourne, Arts House/The Meat Market, Federation Square, Carriageworks, Underbelly Arts Festival and LAB and Artist Led Spaces.. She has recently completed a Master of Fine Arts at Sydney College of the Arts, The University of Sydney under the thesis title Magic Nihilism.
