GONDWANA BATHOLITH (1) Composition with both geological and photographic time
Franklin St East (outdoor) [i]
89 Franklin St, Melbourne
A meditation on the fragility of our environment, and the transience of the marks we leave behind, Nico Krijno’s GONDWANA BATHOLITH (1) Composition with both geological and photographic time brings us into a space where nature and humanity communicate together. This is a place where late-Precambrian metamorphic sandstone becomes the site of spiritual exercise, as significant and vulnerable as any sentient life.
Informed by ancient rock paintings and engravings believed to bring fortune to the hunt, Krijno’s work speaks of the ways human presence transforms a landscape—to beautiful or devastating effect.
