install shots from Rio Vista House in Mildura
Ken + Julia Yonetani's recent series of salt works, Still Life: The Food Bowl, are currently installed at historic Rio Vista House in Mildura as part of Palimpsest #8.
Ken + Julia Yonetani recently completed a Synapse art-science residency awarded by the Australian Network for Art & Technology (ANAT) which resulted in a three month collaboration, in late 2010, on location in Mildura, with scientists at the Murray Darling Freshwater Research Centre and Sunrise 21. Still life: The Food Bowl is the resulting body of work. It is made entirely from groundwater salt that as part of salt interception schemes has been pumped out of the ground around the Murray-Darling in an effort to try and reduce salinity in the river system.
Don't miss the chance to see this stunning installation in such an incredible and poignant setting... Still Life: The Food Bowl can be seen at Rio Vista House until November 13, 2011.
