The EMPYREAN – NGV Pavilion 2021

(A Melbourne lockdown project) We have been immersed in sombre times, introspective moments, recognising our collective grief. Time has been warped. Space stretched, compressed. Worlds tipped upside-down. Hearts and rules broken, nets and souls mended, disruption of our cycles, of our breath-catching norm. Now we are yearning to emerge and reconnect to our humanity and collective spirit – tentative, grateful, aware. It is the re-awakening of our consciousness to those things we take for granted, making visible the unseen.
