Tristan Jalleh | Future Plants 3 - 24 September 2016  

“When you cut into the present the future leaks out” - William Burroughs

Future Plants is an elaborate manipulation of media - a neon noir, rain spattered window into the near future; a love letter to science fiction with a utopian ambition to affect the future itself. Immersive virtual installations of techno-orientalist botany pulsate in infinite darkness.

Tristan Jalleh was born in Adelaide, Australia in 1979. Jalleh works predominantly as a digital video artist, but includes sculpture and drawing in his gallery installations. Jalleh’s artistic practice has also expanded into art direction for commercial music videos since 2013. He currently lives and works in Melbourne.   Jalleh has exhibited work at The Powerhouse Museum for ISEA 2013, Sydney Contemporary 2015 and Galleries UNSW (COFA) in 2014, as well as QUT Creative Industries Precinct in Brisbane, RMIT Gallery, BUS Projects, Utopian Slumps Gallery, Platform, Federation Square in Melbourne. His work was also included in AsiaLink’s Put Up A Signal project with Indonesia in 2014 and the Experimenta International Biennial of Media Art in 2013.
