Every day, all day Wednesday 15 March to Monday 17 April
The exhibition is developed to be viewed through the window so the audience can experience the work 24/7
Our second exhibition at Passage is now open. ‘Urritjara’ is an award winning film by artist and director Tim Georgeson in collaboration with actor and performance artist Derik Lynch.
Georgeson has designed a site-specific installation in Passage to mirror the hypnotic mirage and pink glow of the salt lake Lake Bumbunga, South Australia. Splicing Urritjara across three screens, Georgeson magnifies the frenetic movements of Lynch’s contorting body. ‘Urritjara’, meaning ‘movement’ in Lynch’s Yankunytjatara traditional language, is a film capturing gestural performance about connection to country and journey through landscape.
Bring headphones and scan the window's QR code to listen to the rythmic and electric sounds of ‘Kalkani’, a composition by vocalist, composer and didgeridoo virtuoso William Barton and improvising cross-genre violinist and composer Veronique Serret.
The artists and Passage would like to acknowledge the ongoing custodianship of the Narungga Nation and thank the Elders, past, present and emerging on which this film was made.
