Kairos is an installation by Russell Maliphant Company in collaboration with film artists Warren Du Preez & Nick Thornton Jones.Using three screens, it envelops its viewers in a rich visual landscape of sculptural bodies in motion, accompanied by an absorbing and evocative score from composer Mukul
Kairos uses unseen footage shot during the filming of Erebus, originally commissioned in 2012 for The Space. Erebus was created as a film adaptation of the 2011 Russell Maliphant Company production, The Rodin Project.
