Chris Chong Chan Fui is known for his experimental film-based artworks, which take into question the objectivity of fact and the possibility of defining reality. Nocturnal Zodiac re-configures traditional Eastern and Western astrologies into a new cyclical archive of modern human characteristics and future-telling that drive our fate on this planet. A star map will be projected and mapped onto the entire rotunda of Vari Hall.

 Programmed by Archive/Counter-Archive as part of Biophilia: Artist and Archive Exhibition; Curated by Janine Marchessault.

* ‘Biophilia’ references a love of living things and at the heart of the exhibition are more-than-human animals and our entanglements with them.
