We are made of star stuff explores the cycle of evolution and extinction. Jennifer Hawkins asks the big questions: Where do we come from? Where do we go to?Human population is growing at the rate of 200,000 each day. Other species are becoming extinct at the rate of dozens per day. The laws of physics tell us that matter and energy are two forms of the same thing and that they are the raw material of everything in the universe. That raw material doesn't go away, it just changes form. That foundation of physics seems to Hawkins, to link evolution and extinction, to complete the circle, and to address the big questions. As the stuff of stars we are all connected - to each other, to the earth, to the universe. This body of work explores the cycle of that connection.This exhibition is New South Wales artist Jennifer Hawkins first solo exhibition and has travelled from Latrobe Regional Gallery.
