Aniara Omann (b. 1987, Denmark) lives and works in Glasgow, UK. Omann’s practice evolves around themes of interconnection, ecology and social fictions. Working across sculpture, writing, drawing and live performance Omann seeks to expose and question the apparent boundaries of individual objects and their projected identities. The work is often produced using methods and materials found in manual special effects and prop making.

Aniara Omann & Gary Zhexi Zhang
Market Gallery presents a two-person exhibition with Aniara Omann and Gary Zhexi Zhang exploring the fluidity and contradictions between disparate systems through the use of concepts derived from consciousness-based reality, quantum physics and microbiology.
The exhibition’s focus on micro-and-macro ecologies points towards the complex interrelation between global network relations and local communities as epitomised by Glasgow’s unique arts community.
