Earth A.D. Uma Breakdown
24 September to 11 December Open Wednesday to Saturday, 12 to 5pm (and by appointment*)
Earth A.D. explores the Gothic genre’s relation to deep time, real and imagined versions of England, industrial capitalism, guilt, shame, queerness, and the Gothic’s entangled relationships with the evolution of science fiction, horror and the computer.
That’s one description. Another is that it’s a science fiction story about trans* solidarity and care across time and space, which is repeatedly told, distorted, translated, lost, and reinvented.
Yet another is that it's a room full of coffin technology and holograms, and a video game about the dreams of a sleeping cyborg girl.
Earth A.D. is commissioned by Wysing Arts Centre, FACT and QUAD with public funding from Arts Council England.
