Mildura Palimpsest #8 – ‘Collaborators and Saboteurs’

Mildura Palimpsest #8 is curated by Helen Vivian and Kristian Haggblom who along with the committee, aim at giving opportunities to both local and national artists, in addition to showcasing international projects and artists from Australia, Tibet, Finland, UK, China and Japan.

The theme ‘Collaborators and Saboteurs’ explores the idea that we are all collaborators and saboteurs in the created worlds we inhabit.

Inaugurated in 1998 Mildura Palimpsest is a biennial site-specific visual arts exposition and cross-disciplinary symposium. Palimpsest is significant for its direct engagement with issues of environmental and social sustainability and its remarkable regional location; near the border of three states (Vic, NSW and SA), the junction of the Murray and Darling Rivers, one of Australia’s most important cultural sites – Lake Mungo National Park, and set in the intersecting terrain of desert and irrigated horticulture.

Palimpsest, meaning a parchment which has been partly erased and re-inscribed, evokes the marks made by human settlement on the land, the passage of time, presence and absence, and the web of inter-dependence connecting the natural and the cultural, the material and the immaterial, spheres of existence.
