Embark on a Journey at the National Gallery of Victoria

Experience the wonders of the Triennial International Exhibition 2024

Immerse yourself in the free exhibition which ended on 7 April 2024. Uncover the hidden treasures that await you on all four floors of the NGV.

You'll find 100 innovative projects that were created by 120 collectives, artists, and designers.

I visited the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) to see the Triennial International. I recommend at least a day at the gallery to see the Triennial to see all the exhibits.

The Water Wall at NGV

The Water Wall at NGV is a sight to behold with its display of cascading water.

I can see the water wall captured in the below picture with the project designed by Julian Charrière projected onto it.

And, I notice that the water wall becomes a canvas for his project. It creates a fusion of art and nature.

As I admire the image. I find the vibrant green hue that the water wall has taken on, gives it a unique and enchanting allure.

I step inside the art gallery. And I am greeted by the project's fountain adorned with dancing flames radiating shades of red.

The contrast between the serene green exterior and the fiery interior creates a captivating juxtaposition that leaves me with a lasting impression.

I was mesmerized by the dome that appeared and the way the water wall turned a green color outside the art gallery. And, inside the gallery, I witness the stark contrast of the fountain-illuminated flames and shades of bright red.

Five of the Triennial Projects at NGV

Here, I present five Triennial projects at NGV created by Franziska Furte, Fei Yining, Yinka Shonibare, Lehuauakea, and Lin Fanglu that I captured below.

Franziska Furte

I step into the world of Liquid Skies, also known as Gyrwynt. And, I transcend into the depths of hurricanes through a fusion of infrared satellite images.

I explore the details and hidden patterns of the atmospheric marvels. As I witness the balance between chaos and tranquility.

J.M.W. Turner

I am pictured with the J.M.W. Turner painting, Falls of Schaffhausen (Val d'Aosta).

The painter, Turner, is one of my favorites.

And, his painting was part of the inspiration for Franziska Furter's project.

Upon gazing at the wall, my eyes are drawn to the presence of Mele O Nā Kaukani Wai.

I find that Indigenous ecological wisdom and Western science are embodied in the battle against environmental challenges.

Lin Fanglu

She's four seasons, highlights the profound and enduring connection between people and textiles.

I find that the old craft of tie-dying, knotting, twisting, and tying fabric by hand is inspiring.
