Lauren Brincat, Louisa Bufardeci & Daniel Crooks have each been commissioned to create new work for the TarraWarra Biennial 2021: Slow Moving Waters.
Curated by Nina Miall, the exhibition responds to two related cues: the idea of slowness, and the gentle, measured flow of the nearby Birrarung (Yarra River). The exhibition’s title comes from the translation of the local Woiwurrung word ‘tarrawarra’, after which the Museum, and its surrounding area of Wurundjeri Country in the Yarra Valley are named.
The exhibition develops from the idea that between the acceleration of our current age and the impossibility of stopping altogether is a temporal space of possibility and resistance: slowing down. Through works which unfold conceptually, spatially, materially and temporally over the course of the exhibition, it seeks to heighten our awareness to the overlooked subtleties of the present.
