Sydney Biennale 2012 : All our Relations

I had better describe this year’s Biennale as less exciting, safe, and familiar. ‘The less exciting’ means that at least there was one which elicit the exclamation from me : Philip Beesley’s ‘Hylozoic Series’. This snow crystal like flowers were breathing with me emitting colourful light of life.

Having a glass of wine with the gorgeous Sydney harbour view on the top hill of Cockatoo island, I thought about the theme ‘all our relations’. Yes, they are knotted through stiches, embroidery and weaving.
