Black swan theory
A new exhibition by artist Fabrizio Biviano.
24 kitsch tyre swans (cut from reclaimed car tyres) installed as a ballet of swans appearing to drift across the glassy waters of Lake Cootharaba at Boreen Point. Black swans use to gather in large numbers on this lake, however are far less often spotted there now. The black swan theory or theory of black swan events is a metaphor that describes an event that comes as a surprise, has a major effect, and is often inappropriately rationalized after the fact with the benefit of hindsight.
