TarraWarra Biennial 2021:
Slow Moving Waters

Upcoming
27 March - 11 July 2021
CURATED BY NINA MIALL

Taking the meaning of ‘Tarrawarra’—a Woiwurrung word that translates approximately as ‘slow moving water’—as its departure point, the TarraWarra Biennial 2021 explores ideas of duration, suspension, withdrawal, stillness and the elasticity of time.

Against the backdrop of the hyper-accelerated rhythm of modern life, characterised by the relentless hum of instantaneous communications and a 24–hour news cycle, the artworks featured in this exhibition mark a very different sort of time—one which connects with deeper geological and cosmic currents, or to natural cycles and rhythms—seeking to restore a deep-rooted connection to land and earth, to ancient knowledge and to long-forgotten lore.

Featuring 24 artists from across the country and a number of new site-specific installations, the TarraWarra Biennial 2021 considers the broader arc of history against the pull of the accelerated now, attentive to notions of place, subjectivity and community, and to an idea of the present as a site of multiple durations, pasts and possible futures.
