Tricky Walsh: Tiefenzeit - Art Collector

Walsh, 'It all began in the tundra after all.', 2016, Gouache on paper, 122 x 76cm. Courtesy the Artist and MARS Gallery, Melbourne.

Tiefenzeit is a work of speculative fiction which is embodied through paintings, but also more ephemerally within the gallery by incorporating sound and smell as definitive elements of the installation architecture, providing an illusory slippage in the perception of the space, and encouraging the slowing of time as the senses are bombarded by conflicting information.

This exhibition is the culmination of a three-month residency in London undertaken in late 2015, and the works within it express not only the subjects of my research, but the experience of being completely overwhelmed by the breadth and depth of its/our technological history. At some point, the research started to weave itself into a narrative which is possibly the easiest way my mind had of processing that amount of information into a coherent system. Whatever the cause, Tiefenzeit was born, and given more concrete form upon my return to Tasmania.
