River Run by Josephine Starrs & Leon Cmielewski

Thursday 4 May through to Wednesday 24 Mayl 2017 nightly from 6.00pm – 11.59pm

This projection is time-lapse footage of a journey made by the artists in 2016 following the course of the Darling River. The Darling River Run was often used as a route to market for cattle and sheep, and the are is rich in Indigenous culture and European history. The extreme horizontal screen format of Wagga Wagga's projection surface  is perfect for representing such a long, flat expanse of country where the river slices deep into the land and is only hinted at by an occasional line of trees. 

River Run is part of "The Long Paddock" exhibition, taking place at Wagga Wagga Art Gallery from 6 May - 17 July 2017.

The exhibition is curated by Joni Taylor (New Landscapes Institute).
