NICHOLAS HANISCH

One Hundred Extra Lives is a showcase of three South Australian emerging artists (Nicholas Hanisch, Bonnie Lawson, Madeleine Stentiford) and their adventures through imaginary worlds.

As our world has become increasingly globalized and media-driven, escapism has become more popular than ever. Yet while we are on the cusp of a science fiction reality, it is the past and nostalgia that we increasingly harken to. One Hundred Extra Lives is a celebration and deconstruction of imaginary worlds, fictional tropes and our obsessions over the paracosms of others.
