Two shelters by the Derbarl Yerrigan (Swan River), built for the daily visitors coming to the edge of the water, who walk their dogs or launch their kayaks, are coated in a gradient of chalk in hues of blue, pink and orange.

Shifting between the shelter in the east at sunrise, and the shelter in the west at sunset, join the artists across each Friday of the Biennale to participate in this unfolding artwork, in a collective ritual of mark-making and sharing tea.

Sunrise Sunset invites visitors to take a moment of pause, to witness fluctuating tides, the movement of people and the passing of time.

About the artist

Katie West

Katie West is an artist and Yindjibarndi woman of the Pilbara tablelands with a strong sense of home in Nyoongar boodja. Using found and naturally dyed textiles, video and sound, Katie creates installations and happenings to invite attention to the ways we weave our stories, places, histories and futures.

In 2017 Katie completed a Master of Contemporary Art at the Victorian College of the Arts, University of Melbourne.Other selected exhibitions include: Radical Ecologies, PICA, Perth WA; Roll on, Roll on, Phenomena (until you are no more), curated by Eloise Sweetman, Jan van Eyck Academy, The Netherlands; Warna (ground), Caves Gallery, Melbourne, Vic; wilayi bangarrii, wanyaarri (go for a walk, listen), Dominik Mersch Gallery, Sydney NSW; Installation Contemporary, Sydney Contemporary 2019, Carriageworks, Sydney NSW; Clearing, TarraWarra Museum of Art, Healesville, Vic.

Katie also shares a collaborative project with artist and writer Fayen d’Evie entitled Museum Incognita. Sparked by asking what forms a decolonised museum may take, Museum Incognita revisits neglected, concealed or obscured histories, and activates embodied readings of place. Exhibitions and residencies for the project include: When the other meets the other, curated by Biljana Ciric, Cultural Centre of Belgrade, Serbia; Summer Residency: Museum Incognita, Blindside, Melbourne Vic; A thousand times the rolling sun, curated by Gabriel Curtin, HM Prison, Beechworth, Vic; and the University of Melbourne’s Department of Geography Artist-in-Residence Program.
