Sat 10 Feb – Sat 16 Mar at Holmes à Court Gallery @ No. 10, FREE

Presented in association with Holmes à Court Gallery

Inspired by the artist’s experience of the 2023 Exmouth eclipse, Andrew Nicholls’ exhibition, Portent plays with the common understanding of eclipses as bad omens in diverse cultures throughout history. Video projections and large-scale wall murals and printed hangings, lighting and sound take over the gallery and see the space repeatedly morph from light to darkness and back again.

The exhibition comprises solo works and collaborations with Ad Lib Collective, Sarah Elson, Chad Peacock and Wind Up Bird.
