Clara Adolphs included in the 18th Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art: ‘Inner Sanctum’

The Art Gallery of South Australia has announced the twenty-four participating artists for the 18th Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art: Inner Sanctum, curated by José Da Silva.

 

Inner Sanctum offers an encounter with artists and poets interested in the human condition. The project unfolds across exhibitions, performances and talks that explore our engagement with the world and each other. Here, the idea of an inner sanctum illustrates the private or sacred spaces we create and the faculty of imagination that allows us to see culture and society differently. “Inner Sanctum offers a snapshot of contemporary Australia that is reflective and hopeful,” said curator José Da Silva. “We see works that conjure expressions of time and atmosphere, relationships between ancestral knowledge and spiritual guidance, and a slower, less transactional, more sustainable engagement with the world. We find our inner sanctum in gardens and walking tracks, memories and stories of home and family, locations of special knowledge and sacred activities, and, importantly, the working spaces of artists and the art museum environment.”

 

The exhibition will be presented from 1 March to 2 June 2024 as part of the 2024 Adelaide Festival.
