TERROIR portrait

TERROIR have been invited as part of a distinguished group of Australian architects to participate in Australian Style I: Architecture - an exhibition exploring contemporary Australian identity through creative process to be held at the newly opened National Portrait Gallery in September 2009.

The main theme of this exhibition is: identity through creative process.  The exhibition foregrounds the philosophy and creative process at the core of each participant’s practice, hence constituting a ‘portrait’ of their style. 

TERROIR has gathered together a team including two favourite collaborators - Brett Boardman and John Vella.  Brett is taking a series of portraits while John has produced a major video artwork/installation that captures the character of our creative process by overlapping models, projects, landscapes and conversations in a 16 minute video piece.

Brett's session with Gerard on Bondi Beach has been captured in the photogaphs accompanying this posting.  Brett's images of the video filming sessions are also posted here.
