The Garden of Forking Paths

Exhibition and Shows

29 Nov 2018 to 17 Feb 2019

The Garden of Forking Paths brings together for the first time the distinctive practices of Melbourne-based artist Mira Gojak and Tokyo-based artist Takehito Koganezawa. This is the first in an annual series of international exhibitions at Buxton Contemporary that seek to provide global context to contemporary Australian art.

The exhibition finds points of connection and divergence in the work of these two renowned artists, with large scale installations and more intimate works connecting their practices across both floors of the museum.

The Garden of Forking Paths takes its name from the modernist Argentine writer Jorge Luis Borges’ intricate and magical short story from 1941. Part philosophy, part science fiction and part riddle, Borges’ story is a richly multidimensional text that conjures co-existent but dynamically shifting realms of time and space.
