TERMINUS | Murray Bridge Regional Gallery | 5 Dec 2020 – 17 Jan 2021

Image: Jess Johnson and Simon Ward ‘Terminus’ 2017-18 (still), virtual reality experience in five parts: colour, sound. National Gallery of Australia, Canberra. Commissioned with the assistance of The Balnaves Foundation 2017. Purchased 2018.


Inspired by Sci-Fi, comics and fantasy movies, Terminus is a virtual reality (VR) installation that transports the viewer into an imaginary landscape of rich colour and intricate patterns.

These dream-like places are populated by humanoid clones and cryptic symbols, and explored via a network of travellators and gateways. Prepare yourself for a slippage of time and space as your journey propels you through various distinct realms, encountering optical challenges and visual puzzles. On this quest you’ll see that reality is not fixed but both malleable and multiple.

With their pioneering use of virtual reality, artists Jess Johnson and Simon Ward hold a unique position amongst contemporary art practitioners. Johnson’s drawings are transformed from analogue into digital, and from solo practice into cross-disciplinary collaboration, forming the basis of this virtual experience, which was then animated by Ward and enriched with input from Smith and Clarke.

The exhibition will be accompanied by an educational resource directly linked to the Australian Curriculum and designed to develop successful learners, confident and creative individuals and active, informed citizens.

This is the only chance to experience this amazing exhibition in South Australia. 

The exhibition is FREE ENTRY.
