2023 Venice Architecture Biennale

REALMstudios’ strategic landscape project Reimagining Your Creek has been chosen to be part of the Australian exhibition at the 2023 Venice Architecture Biennale.

Anthony Coupe, Julian Worrall, Ali Gumillya Baker, Emily Paech and Sarah Rhodes are the curators of “Unsettling Queenstown.”

The exhibition will explore decolonisation and decarbonisation, along with regeneration and revitalisation, in response to the Biennale theme set by curator Lesley Lokko, “Laboratory of the Future.”

Using Queenstown, Tasmania, a settlement based on resource extraction and labour exploitation, as inspiration, the Australian pavilion in the Giardini will become an immersive experience, with voi

ces of First Nations peoples and Queenstown residents delivering oral histories in the ghosted structure of Queenstown’s Empire Hotel.

The walls of the Pavilion will be covered with projections of photographs of Country and its evolution, and an open archive of examples and strategies from contemporary practice, which is where REALMstudios’ work will feature.

We are delighted to be a small part of this significant exhibition, and equally pleased to have our work contributing to ongoing discussions about Country, colonisation and how we are all working on making new ways to be in an old world, together.
