If you desire a world in which forests live inside galleries, Danish-style villages as built by artists from the ground up and a giant waterfall, this year’s Biennale is exactly what you have been looking for.
This year’s Biennale Of Sydney launched to the media and opened for vernissage today, and has recieved very positive feedback.
Demonstrating the nexus between art and philosophy, ‘Imagine What You Desire’ is an all-out celebration of the imaginative at locations around the city including Cockatoo Island, Artspace, MCA, Art Gallery Of NSW and Carriageworks.
Highlights include Yingmei Duans’s interactive performance Happy Yingmei in which she delivers her ‘wishes’ to passers by in an internal forest; Eva Koch’s projection ‘I AM THE RIVER’ which features a projection of a giant waterfall; for something more relaxing, recline on human shaped pillows as part of Pipilotti Rist’s Mercy Garden Retour Skin (2014); and Shannon Te Ao’s video piece called two shoots that stretch far out in which he recites poetry to an audience of animals.
Imagine What You Desire will be running free to the public from Friday March 21 until Monday June 9 at various harbourside locations, with a full program available online.
