Steampunk Solar System

'Alchemy' Exhibition by Erno Berkovics Sanders

The exhibition, Alchemy, showcases the work of artist Erno Berkovics Sanders, who has created his own unique vision of our solar system from gold, brass, bronze lights and old machines parts. These steampunk style planet sculptures are formed from an array of recycled, found and re-purposed materials. Erno Berkovics Sanders is a reclusive mature artist, these ingenious sculptural works have never been seen by the public before

The artist has applied a certain alchemy to the challenges in his life and to these everyday materials, creating from discarded pieces these objects of wonder.

Erno Berkovics Sanders solar system includes Jupiter, Mars, Venus, Earth as well as the Sun and the Moon in Solid Bronze, Copper and Brass. Coloured lights adorn the sculptures as well as 24 Carat Gold guitar strings. These semi-functional sculptures light up and swivel on stands made of old fire hoses, using solid bronze gears from pastry mixers and pistons from a tea bag making machine.

Alchemy will be held at Synergy at CERES small works gallery in the hundred year old Red Train, from 6- 16 Feb.

We warmly invite you to the opening this Saturday night from 6-8pm.
