    Beyond the Words of Earth is the Philadelphia debut of multi-disciplinary Toronto based artist Rajni Perera. This exhibition invites viewers into the commemoration of a future where borders, imperialist capitalism and ecological collapse have birthed the survival of Travellers –a humanoid species whose multi-ancestral technologies have allowed them to recreate planetary and interplanetary relations.

    This solo-exhibition presents portraits, sculptures, and objects from Perera’s Traveller series. These works are exhibited to simulate a natural history museum, indicating an evolutionary timescale thousands of years into the future. The Travellers’ humanoid shapes still connect them to earthly pasts and honors the noble confidence and intelligence, that has maintained their interconnection through self and community knowledge.
