A timely investigation into the nature of care and neglect
- Exclusive publication complementing Gabriella Hirst. Phantom Ride premiered at ACMI in 2021, and was the forth Ian Potter Moving Image Commission.
- Gabriella Hirst (she/her) was born and grew up on Cammeraygal land (Australia) and is currently living between Berlin and London. She works primarily with moving image, performance, and with the garden as a site of critique and care. Gabriella's practice and research explores connections between various manifestations of capture and control – spanning plant taxonomies, landscape painting, art conservation and nuclear history.
- Gabriella Hirst's two-channel video art piece, 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.
