Kelly Richardson’s Mariner 9 transforms the Royal Ontario Museum’s Thorsell Spirit House into an immersive environment, transporting the viewer into the centre of a Martian dust storm several centuries in the future. The Martian landscape becomes a battlefield of real and imagined spacecraft in this panoramic video installation that is at once dystopian and alarmingly beautiful.
Presented in collaboration with the Institute of Contemporary Culture, Royal Ontario Museum. Thorsell Spirit House, 100 Queen's Park. September 6 to 16.
