A characteristically colourful voyage into chromosomes lands at Sullivan+Strumpf.

Fans of the explosively colourful world of Japanese-born, Tweed Heads-based contemporary artist Hiromi Tango, or those with a generally elevated appreciation for colour, should check out Healing Chromosomes at Sullivan+Strumpf this month.

Tango's work scans sculpture, photography, wide-scale installation and performance, drawing inspiration from her environment and the wider scientific community. Her practice is increasingly focused on exploring neuroscientific concepts, posing questions in "a quest to effect healing and well-being through arts".

Healing Chromosomes invites us to ponder whether our chromosomes need healing from the impact of modern society, or if they already hold the key to our healing. The exhibition continues Tango's fascination with the emotional impact of colour and questions its relationship with the brain. Why do certain colours provoke certain emotional responses? Does memory affect our emotional associations with a colour? Are there cultural factors at play? These questions aside, Tango's work is also just really, really aesthetically epic. If you aren't familiar with her work, this could be a beautiful introduction.
