    Daniel Boyd will be exhibiting ‘VIDEO WORKS,’ a major video installation project at Carriageworks during Sydney Festival in 2020. Comprising an immersive composite of three video installations, the works will map the walls of the gallery with Boyd's infinite cosmos of dynamic compositions and prismatic colour. 

    Designed as an experience that is both otherworldly and grounded, expansive and atomic, ’VIDEO WORKS’ will be presented as three major video installations: ‘A Darker Shade of Dark #1-4’ (2012), ‘History is Made at Night’ (2013); and ‘Yamani’ (2018).

    Accompanying the work is a mixed soundtrack by Boyd’s long-time music collaborators Canyons.

    On view from 8 January - 1 March 2020, ‘VIDEO WORKS’ is an abstracted journey through time immemorial, and a gesture to the impermanence of life on this planet.⠀

    Jon Cattapan will be co-curating 'Turbulence, Conflict and the Garden of Remediation’ at Melbourne Gardens, Domain House, on view from 12 October - 3 November. ⁣⠀ ⁣

    The exhibition explores the unexpected relationships between gardens and plants in times of turbulence. Gardens offer refuge; they are places of rehabilitation and healing. The plants that grow within this environment take on the role of talisman and medicine, and now, as harbingers of conflict-driven climate change.

    A public opening and welcome event for the exhibition will be held on Tuesday 15 October from 5:30pm. An accompanied symposium, 'AFTERSTORM: Gardens, War, Conflict’ will take place at Mueller Hall from 25 - 26 October. The symposium features presentations and panel discussions on the place of gardens within the movements of humans caught in turbulent flows. ⁣

    Curated by Jon Cattapan, Lyndell Brown, Charles Green and Paul Gough, the exhibition and symposium is an Australian Research Council Discovery Project, and is presented by the Victorian College of the Arts and University of Melbourne in partnership with Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria. For more information, contact the University of Melbourne Visitor Centre on 9252 2429. ⠀⁣
