Every now and then began with the romantic notion that all of natural and cultural history is an epic panorama, embracing the present, past and the future in continuum.

A constellation of prop-like objects, this work merges natural remnants, mineral formations, tectonic forces and planetary movements with cultural and observable representations of time unfolding. A vision of magnitude in dioramic scale, every now and then considers and seeks closeness with the many versions and monuments of time: lunar, solar, geological, astronomical and cosmic.

This project has been supported by Brand X as part of the Visual Arts Residency Program funded through Arts NSW.

Biography

Lisa Sammut is a Sydney based emerging artist who seeks to gain a tangible sense of cosmic time and scale through material production. Currently her artistic practice is highly influenced by her experience of the Chile earthquake in 2010, a recent artist residency with the Sydney Observatory including a research trip to the astronomy capital of Coonabarabran, NSW as well as her work surrounded by natural and historical artefacts at the Australian Museum. Lisa received a Bachelor of Fine Arts with Honours (class 1) from the College of Fine Arts, UNSW in 2012.
