TRACY SARROFF will be exhibiting a sculptural light installation at Seventh Gallery, Melbourne from 10 - 25 September. The exhibition, Dragon’s Backbone, is inspired by the ever-evolving relationships with the natural world across territories both real and imagined. It incorporates references to terrace farming, climate change and the genetic engineering of food crops. Allied to ideas sourced from science fiction and science fact, her works look like illuminated and glowing hybrid plant-life and mountainous, glacial forms. The separate sculptures take on titles from Southern China’s vast region of spectacular rice terraces, The Dragon’s Backbone of Longshen that stretches layer upon layer, coiling around from the base of Longji Mountain to its summit.
