TarraWarra Biennial 2021: Slow Moving Waters

The TarraWarra Biennial 2021 exhibition features 24 artists from across the country making new works that explore ideas of slowness, deceleration, drift and the elasticity of time.

The exhibition title Slow Moving Waters comes from the accepted translation of the local Woiwurrung word ‘tarrawarra’, after which the Museum, and its surrounding Yarra Valley area are named.

Guest Curator Nina Miall says the exhibition takes shape around two related cues: the idea of slowness, and the winding course of the Birrarung (Yarra River), which marks the northern boundary of the grounds of TarraWarra.

“In tune with the unhurried arc of the river, Slow Moving Waters proposes a stay to the ever more rapid flows of people, commerce and information that characterise the dynamic of globalisation,” Ms Miall said.

Against today’s cult of speed with the relentless hum of its 24/7 communications, the artworks in the Biennial mark a different sort of time – one which connects with the vastness and intricacy of geological and cosmological cycles, seasonal rhythms, interconnected ecologies, and ancient knowledge systems.
