 In Absence – 2019 Architecture Commission

Description

The NGV is currently CLOSED to the public due to COVID-19.

Contemporary artist Yhonnie Scarce and Melbourne architecture studio Edition Office are the winners of the 2019 National Gallery of Victoria Architecture Commission for their scheme titled In Absence.

This is an annual open national competition, inviting architects to create a site-specific work of temporary architecture, activating the NGV’s Grollo Equiset Garden. For 2019, architects were encouraged to submit ideas focusing on multidisciplinary thinking, collaboration and audience engagement.

Yhonnie Scarce’s and Edition Offices’ project In Absence is an architectural installation that invites audiences to better understand the fallacy of the premise of Terra Nullius, which declared Australia as an emptiness awaiting ownership, by revealing and celebrating long histories of Indigenous construction, design, industry and agriculture, including the permanent villages and dwellings of many Indigenous communities.
