To June 12, 23rd Biennale of Sydney: rivus at the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia is imagined as a passage through deep time, vibrant matter, and dark psychological waters. Its 22 participants explore connections between human and non-human worlds, making links between earthbound and watery beings and cosmic and terrestrial waterways. Tensions between systems of nature and culture flow through the rivus exhibition, as do themes of fluidity and interdependence, and the precarious relationship all life on earth has to water.
