Responding to the initial split of the first cell billions of years ago, Mel O’Callaghan’s major new exhibition, All is Life, encompasses sculpture, performance, sound and film to explore the relationship between life and nonlife. Starting with the singular impulse of the primordial cell that led to the whole of life on earth, All is Life looks at the individual’s connection to the collective.

A performance takes place every Saturday at 11am.

This is a free exhibition.
