"TRACE The International Exhibition of the Liverpool Biennial of Contemporary Art"
1999-09-24 until 1999-11-21
Tate Gallery
Liverpool, , UK United Kingdom

The first ever Liverpool Biennial of Contemporary Art will be hosted in many public locations throughout the city. A central element is Trace, curated by Anthony Bond from the Gallery of New South Wales, which brings together an international selection of work based on themes of memory, mapping and material evidence.

Trace at Tate Gallery Liverpool includes sculptural installations, photographs, paintings and video works. Photographers Vik Muniz and Miguel Rio Branco explore Brazilian city life. Vik Muniz' process involves taking a photograph, using sugar or the detritus of a carnival as additional materials and then re-photographing to create a beautiful, layered image. Brazilian artist Adriana Varej„o is more concerned with the history and memories of her country's colonial past. In collaboration with Gallery staff, Miroslaw Balka will make a large sculptural installation out of soap which draws on his personal history and Polish culture. Reinhard Mucha from Germany transposes the memory of one space into another whilst Australian artist Susan Norrie records scenes of tragedy and personal trauma.
