Overview

Temple is an immersive, reflective audiovisual installation that pays homage to the expressive and idiosyncratic native cockatoo. Slow-motion visuals play across a triptych of towering screens, transforming the NFSA’s expansive Gallery into a space of wonder and delight.

A shallow pool of still water extends the dramatic impact of striking, larger-than-life Red-tailed Black Cockatoos, Galahs and Sulphur-crested Cockatoos, evoking the beauty of natural waterways and presenting a space of quiet contemplation.

First commissioned for Vivid Sydney, the installation is a temple to nature with the power to immerse you in the present moment.

Temple invites you to reflect on the wonder of nature and your place within it.
