Our installation for the 16th International Biennale Architettura 2018 curated by Yvonne Farrell and Shelley McNamara, returns home from the Arsenale in Venice to be exhibited at the 2020 Adelaide // International.
The installation is the centrepiece of the festival, on display at the Samstag Museum from 28th February to 12th June 2020. 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.
