Garland begins the second half of its journey by heading South (in a good sense). We venture to lutruwita Tasmania where we find an alternative picture to the gothic intensity of Dark MOFO. tunapri is the palawa word for “knowledge” and reflects a number of the local Aboriginal stories of cultural resurgence resulting from recovered techniques. This has a settler parallel in the remarkable projects that uncover knowledge stored in objects, such as baskets, rocks and even a porridge spoon. These stories resonate across the South in Latin America, with moving articles from Chile, Colombia, Guatemala and Panama. Garland #11 reminds us that knowledge in things runs deeper than information in screens. There’s a light on the hill.
