MOORINA BONINI, NICHOLAS SMITH & CHI TRAN.
All experience is true.
Events suggest that we are capable of retaining some kind of ‘environmental memory’.
“We don’t know exactly why this happens, but it might be a form of biological forward-planning.”
-Chi Tran, excerpt from ‘Did you know that your structure is perfect, like water? (variation iii)’, 2020
Variations presents new works made by Moorina Bonini, Nicholas Smith and
Chi Tran during a year of pandemic.
Do artists ever make new work, or do they continue to make the same work
in different forms?
Here, three screens respond to heat, light, evaporation and other forms of energy.
This exhibition contains works originally commissioned by Culture Online, an initiative of Darebin City Council (2020).
There was no opening reception for this exhibition due to COVID-19 restrictions.
