Australia Pavilion Venice Biennale

Venice, Italy

Rough texture of a wall felt rather than seen    Mood    Reflections of a green watery surface    The smooth whitish grey of plaster    Criss-crossing lines of colour above   Intensity and paleness of light and colour    Ambiguity: (is Australia) under or over the sea?    Ambiguity: myth and mystery    Place of make-believe    Green
Close down the light, a lens contracting, the eye adjusting    Joy    People whisper    Occasional laughter    Forgetting momentarily where you are    Remembering (where you are) and of culture    Distance, the infinity of imagination    Sky    Pale blue    Fractured reflections of light through a gemstone    Deep blue of darkened space    A blue tinged light    Edges of light    The bluish texture of a sprayed concrete wall
