New Zealand artist Elizabeth Thomson explores themes of global warming, pollution, science, the environment and the overfishing of oceans in her new exhibition Cellular Memory. Expect to see a variety of sea creatures, photographs of the molecular and cellular, and 500 bronze fish called the "Fearless Five Hundred".

For over three decades, Elizabeth Thomson's art has engaged with issues to do with science, imagination, culture and, increasingly, what it means to live in the South Pacific in the 21st century. Thomson’s art has been described, variously, as hypnotic, intense, soothing, transformative and magical. 

The exhibition is curated by Gregory O’Brien and accompanied by a highly illustrated publication with contributions from Gregory, Lloyd Jones and Jenny Bornholdt.
