The Garden of Time

15 April – 28 April

La Storta, Venezia Contemporanea, Venice, Italy

Taking its title from J. G. Ballard’s nostalgic short story of impending doom, The Garden of Time presents the work of six diverse artists ranging from Northern Europe across to Western Australia. With playful and very different approaches to painting, photography or object-making, the thoughtfully curated works in the exhibition coalesce and radiate in surprising ways, like a garden gone wild. Despite an imploding world outside, they invite quiet contemplation as they tease-out fresh perspectives, showcase cultural diversity, and cultivate connections between Australia and the Netherlands.
