The Voyager Golden Records, created to go on board Voyagers 1 & 2, contained recordings varying from two people kissing to mathematical equations. This group exhibition looks at our need to record, document and create objects in order to make sense of the world and our place within it.

Featured artists include Dorothy Cross, Laura de Búrca, Ed Devane, Jane Locke, Susan MacWilliam, Lucy McKenna, Suzanne Mooney, Lorraine Neeson, Paul Nugent, Niamh O’Malley, Richard Proffitt and Jennifer Walshe.

‘A billion years from now, when everything on Earth we’ve ever made has crumbled into dust, the Voyager record will still speak for us.’
