Darling Darling is a timely investigation into the nature of care and neglect.
Gabriella Hirst's two-channel video art installation presents two contrasting visions of the Barka Darling River in dialogue with each other: the detailed work by art conservators to restore the 19th century painting, The flood in the Darling, 1890, by WC Piguenit, and the environmental crisis facing the river today.
Presented by ACMI & the Ian Potter Cultural Trust.
