Biennale of Sydney
Sydney, Australia

The 23rd Biennale of Sydney is articulated around a series of conceptual wetlands situated along waterways of the Gadigal, Burramatagal and Cabrogal peoples.

Pier 2/3 Walsh Bay Arts Precinct is proposed as a briny wetland: a place where fresh and salt waters meet.

Participants reflect about the effects of climate change in the natural environment as well as in human communities; they present histories and objects associated with specific sites and waterways, from local mythologies to contemporary lore. Some draw on traditional cultural practices to speak about connections to water and nature, water spirits, and earthly and celestial beings. Others propose different forms of interspecies communication by decentring the human as just one of multiple voices.
