Gabriella Hirst: Darling Darling

ACMI, Federation Square, Flinders Street, Melbourne, Victoria, 3000
Until 30 May 2021

ACMI and The Ian Potter Cultural Trust present the Ian Potter Moving Image Commission 2020 now on view at ACMI.

Gabriella Hirst's two-channel video art piece, Darling Darling, is a timely investigation into the nature of care and neglect. Darling Darling presents two contrasting visions of the Barka Darling River in dialogue with each other: the detailed work by art conservators to restore the 19th century painting, The flood in the Darling, 1890, by WC Piguenit, and the environmental crisis facing the river today.
