It's a floating island village of twisted towers and odd offices, the only inhabitants seem to be the fish: rocking, smoking, swimming and flying - you can jump on the back of a manta ray and take a tour.
If you like to bounce, which we both know you do, so don't lie, you'll find a dedicated platform where you can have a do-over from Scottius' bed in the MushROOM. This is no mere bedspring fling - in fact the whole build is an exciting, expanded new adventure through Polke's art.
Scottius Polke: Lunamaruna is a place with elements of fantasy and science fiction where something has gone wrong - something fishy, a on a large scale. However, whatever it is that went awry, I can't say... On the technical end, it is my sketchbooks made 3d and animated, come to life. The drawings go back over several years, and I've been working on the project inworld over the past four months or so with great help from Kimba Sideways as well as animators and scripters Alexx Fenstalker and Desdemona Enfield, and of course Zachh Cale who is always so generous with space and encouragement here at project Z.
Zachh Cale: Scottius continues to amaze me with his approach to art - and you can feel it in all his exhibits - it's an invitation to explore and embrace both his vision and your own. And don't forget to say I'm wearing the Lunamaruna T shirt.
A visit to the opening on Sunday March 28, 1 PM SLT at project Z will get you a lovely Lunamaruna Tee, made by Estelle Parnall, and at 2pm the music of Skye Galaxy. It's going to be otter bliss.
The availability of cans of Kelp and other Green Matter at Lunamaruna does raise a side issue. In Stato di eccezione, Agamben posits the tin can as a topos for fused secession, at once in the world yet discrete from it, an interstitial veil of aluminium interpolating the originary unity of content and consumer, raising the stakes of the inherent graspability of the object while precluding access to its disclosure. This being said, Foucault's oft-cited excogitation on the phallic implication of can opener configures the discourse within the parameters of inter-penetration, through the duality of presence and absence, vacuum and volume, and reminds the reader of the formal apparatus of the essential, and one might add primordial, dialectic between one who can and one who cannot. Yum.
