Mildura Palimpsest is an Australian and international visual arts festival.
Described as the Biennale of the bush, the festival showcases over 100 international and local artists’ work. Installations in historic buildings, motels, shop fronts and even a service station makes the Mildura Palimpsest a truly unique festival.
The theme of the eighth festival in 2011 explored ‘Collaborators and Saboteurs’ in which artists experimented with the idea that we are all involved in the creation of the environment we inhabit.
Artists created pieces made specifically from their surroundings, including an incredible sculpture – Still Life: The Food Bowl - completely made from salt found along the embankments of the Murray Darling River.
