Immersive exhibition comes to Art Gallery of WA

A multi-sensory installation excavating meaning from the everyday, TIME • RONE projects onto a grand scale the lifelong search for beauty in decay.

Following a sell-out season in Melbourne, TIME • RONE opens its doors in AGWA’s Centenary Galleries this winter with expanded staging and a new room, exclusive to Perth.

Experience the historic Centenary Galleries like never before, as you walk, breathe and live among remnants of mid-century Australia.

Time has worn away much, and dust has settled over the detritus. But through the peeling paint and cracked ceilings, life persists.

Faces search out for something, for all of eternity. Ghostly illusions from the past meld with mirrors into the future. For now, they’re all here with us, frozen in time.

From the mind of the ingenious and awarded multi-disciplinary artist Rone, the exhibition blends soundscape, mural and installation to ask questions about what we leave behind, and honours the otherwise forgotten.

Like all things, TIME • RONE is impermanent. But for a season, it invites you to exist in the same moment.
