Fiona Gavino, Myrto Angelouli, Future Water/ Water Future, 2017

Pixels+Fibre duo Fiona Gavino and Myrto Angelouli continue their experimentation with digital and fibre art by visually examining possible scenarios for the future of the planet’s water in this multidimensional projection mapping installation. Cane, industrial pipes, water, black dye, mapped video projections and a fluctuating soundscape hope to act as a wake up call; the audience is invited to watch, think about the obvious but easily forgotten connection of water to humanity’s future and join the voices that express a constant and urgent worry for a bleak future that is not all too far…

The Bunbury Biennale is a juried exhibition which brings together works by contemporary artists from across Western Australia.  Featuring some of the state’s most respected visual arts practitioners, alongside emerging and mid-career artists it is a chance for regional audiences to experience the diversity of contemporary arts practice in the west.

In 2017, the 13th Bunbury Biennale continues to celebrate the diverse identities of WA based artists and showcases contemporary visual arts practice across a range of media, from sculpture and installation to painting, drawing and printmaking.

The Bunbury Biennale was initiated by the City of Bunbury Arty Collection Committee in 1993 – it is the second oldest Biennale event in Australia.  It was created in order to expand and diversify the existing city of Bunbury Art Collection which is the largest public art collection in the state, outside of the Art Gallery of Western Australia.
