Held in the body, flung through the air, or drawn from the soil.
The sixth TarraWarra Biennial exhibition explores how human will is expressed in physical form. From throwing liquid bronze to whistling for three days straight, these works
harness our wilful energies in curious and surprising ways.
These manifestations include 19 new commissions, performance events and works that refigure the spaces of TarraWarra itself, including Bidjara artist Dale Harding’s site-specific wall painting on the renowned 45-metre vista wall as well as new work from Vicki Couzens, Claire Lambe, Michelle Ussher, Fairy Turner, Mike Parr and Rob McLeish among many others.
Since its first incarnation in 2006 the TarraWarra Biennial has grown to become one of the key meeting points of Australia’s most cutting-edge work. From the anarchic to the elegant to the very loud, this is contemporary Australian art that pulls process into play, and opens form to feeling.
