Tim Silver is one of the artists in the 2012 Adelaide Biennale, titled Parallel Collisions, curated by Alexie Glass Kantor and Natasha Bullock.
An experiential proposition inspired by art, cinema and literature, the 2012 Adelaide Biennial explores the ways in which ideas emerge, converge and re-form through time. From a floating island of 2000 cut-glass objects to an explosive light installation that clocks in real time human births, deaths and dying stars, this Biennial considers the temporality of the present as it parallels and collides with the past. Across four physical platforms, Parallel Collisions presents 21 commissioned works by some of Australia's leading artists, 21 original texts, a designer, an architect, two curators and an institution, forming a connective tissue that attempts to understand our subjective experience of time.
