Katie Paterson, along with Susan Hiller, is one of the selected artists for Worlds in Collision: Adelaide International 2014. This event, curated by Richard Grayson, features visual artists who suggest new ways of modelling and imagining the world, who map the edges of what is known, and who investigate the potentials of what might lie beyond across four different sites.
Paterson showcases her ongoing year-long project ‘Second Moon’, which involves a fragment of the moon circling the earth for one year via air-freight courier on a man-made orbit.
