Our installation for Biennale Architettura 2018, curated by Yvonne Farrell and Shelley McNamara, invites visitors to look through a series of portals that will transport them from Italy to Australia and back again.
Further conversations, essays and behind-the-scenes process captured in Somewhere Other by Uro Publications.
Subjects of continual exploration in the work of the practice, portals are used to frame views and establish connections between buildings and their context. Our installation extends this function further - a calibrated device and a long lens between Venice and Australia. Looking through these portals will introduce the viewer to the buildings of John Wardle Architects, landscapes of Australia, and the craft of several collaborators that were central to realising the work.
