The 2020 Adelaide// International looks to the ways in which built forms can make us aware of the social, spatial and temporal present. The centrepiece, Somewhere Other by John Wardle Architects in collaboration with Natasha Johns-Messenger, is complemented by Belgian artist David Claerbout’s monumental real-time moving-image work Olympia, while First Nations artist Brad Darkson’s sound and sculptural work critiques antagonistic built environments. Startling and graceful juxtapositions of architecture with the human form by Zoë Croggon, Helen Grogan and Georgia Saxelby also feature.
Nearby Matthew Bird working with students, responds to the exhibition with a speculation on the afterlife of architecture.
Exhibition opens: 6–8pm Saturday 28 February
