As the ‘poet advocate for the dispossessed’, Christian Boltanski is known for his highly personal body of work exploring memory, loss, birth and death. The presentation of Chance at Carriageworks, marks the first time a major work by Boltanski has been presented in Australia. Responding to the architecture and scale of Carriageworks, this immense and complex installation allows you to witness lives unfold, following the rhythm of births and deaths across the globe and invites you to explore the idea that all human life is the result of chance. Presented by Carriageworks and Sydney Festival.
