David Booth [Ghostpatrol] in Adelaide Biennial


The 2018 Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art launches this week at the Art Gallery of South Australia and features a new installation by David Booth [Ghostpatrol].

Curated by Erica Green, Divided Worlds  ‘recognises that we live in troubled times. However, rather than foretelling conflict, the focus has been on assembling an exhibition that celebrates the enduring role of art and culture. Divided Worlds offers an opportunity to experience an alternative dimension – one where “difference” is the natural order of things, and a strength to be celebrated’.

“For ‘Divided Worlds’, Booth brings his world into contact with ours. His universe sweeps across the Art Gallery of South Australia walls, inviting visitors to momentarily relax the boundaries between fact and fiction by conflating elements from the two.”

David Booth [Ghostpatrol] will also be participating in START at the Gallery. Experience a live painting demonstration in the Sculpture Courtyard on Sunday 4 March, 11am – 3pm.
