A Willoughby City Council curated exhibition exploring contemporary notions of landscape and our changing relationship with nature.
Parallel Wanderings 双行游 explores how contemporary Australian artists with Chinese cultural roots reinterpret and draw from Chinese landscape traditions, and present the notion of ‘landscape’ through the contemporary mediums of sculpture, photography, installation and performance art. Through their different mediums, this group of artists reflect on the importance of nature and their own personal connection to the natural world. As the parameters around contemporary art practices continue to expand, the landscape genre continues to adapt with it, highlighting present-day issues, including Climate Change and urbanisation.
ARTISTS: Thomas C. Chung, WeiZen Ho, Karen Lee, Pamela Leung, Ruth Ju-shih Li, Dapeng Liu, Jayanto Tan, Laurens Tan, Catherine Woo and Tianli Zu
