FRANCE // VISUAL ART AUSTRALIA // VISUAL ART TarraWarra Museum of Art in association with Melbourne Festival presents TarraWarra Museum of Art and Liquid Architecture in association with Melbourne Festival presents PIERRE HUYGHE TARRAWARRA INTERNATIONAL 2015 AUSTRALIAN PREMIERE Curators AMELIA BARIKIN & VICTORIA LYNN From renowned French artist Pierre Huyghe comes an exhibition spanning 30 million years: a journey that takes us from a single, ancient piece of fossilised amber; through to Antarctica in search of a mythical beast; and finally to a decaying compost heap in a park in Kassel, Germany. The first solo exhibition of Huyghe’s works in Australia, this remarkable show weaves living creatures into its artworks, with spiders and ants tracing lines and pathways across the gallery walls. Pierre Huyghe, A Journey that wasn’t, Double Negative, October 19, 2005. Event, Wollman Ice Rink, Central Park, New York, USA. Courtesy the artist.
