Slow works brings together the works of various artists dealing with migration and memory. The act of travel, and the ease with which we now can change our location, creates different possibilities for global markets and workforces, and has made it so we need to be flexible and mobile at all times. The traditional idea of traveling, wandering or migrating, sometimes without a destination in mind, has become an abstract concept in the context of time-perception and time-value. Through the materialisation of memory, either by documentation, archiving data, energy or personal memories, the consequences of this abstraction have never had as much impact as they do today. It has become a necessity that we either declare or are imposed upon by.
The exhibition has been made possible with generous support by the Consulate General of the Federal Republic of Germany, Sydney.
