In a new series of sculptures, drawings and installations, Strachan retraces part of the history of the conquest of space and in so doing shows hisfascination for Ride and the capacity of matter andthe human body to stand up to hostile environments.Tavares Strachan studies these invisible forces in thisseries, using his own experience of hostile territories, which includes polar expeditions and astronaut training, and through a great deal of scientific research both historical and of his own.
