Welcome to the Embassy of Translation
This outpost of the Biennale of Sydney is dedicated to artworks that translate historical materials into a 21st century language, and through that act reveal key aspects of those materials.
Among the highlights are British artist Helen Marten’s humorous sculptural exercises in word play; six new paintings inspired by pioneering Indigenous activist Pemulwuy from Kudjila/Gangalu artist Daniel Boyd, whose practice interrogates European perspectives of Australia’s history; and the video work ‘Parade’, in which Berlin-based Australian dancer-choreographer Adam Linder and artist Shahryar Nashat recreate Jean Cocteau’s 1917 ‘Cubist’ ballet of the same name (generally considered the first ‘experimental ballet’).
