Bec Bigg-Wither's work centres on the human, metaphysical and visual drama of early space exploration.

This show considers whether early US space programmes can be commemorated without boosterism or sentimentality.

The pieces are hand-made collages made from found images. Most are made entirely from NASA images and National Geographics. They include portrayals of Apollo astronauts as winged and chiselled father-figures, bringing order and security to the young worlds that surround them; female and minority astronauts who flew only in subsequent eras; astronauts gazing out from the rotting cities that once built their moon ships; and disintegrating astronauts completing their journey home to the stars.
