As we experience lockdown we have become even more aware of the present – the day to day. Time Pass explores the experience of ‘passing time’. This exhibition offers us an opportunity to pause, slow down and pay attention to the moments that offer us joy and wonder, at the little things that we might take for granted in our everyday lives.
Through the lens of two artists Mylyn Nguyen and
Garry Trinh, Time Pass explores experiences of place, history and the passing of time in Bankstown and its surrounds.
"The new digital exhibition Time Pass is a love letter to the local area..."

Mylyn Nguyen has developed several solo exhibitions that have humorously explored her childhood memories and curiosities. These comprehensive bodies of work, as well as several smaller projects, have varied in appearance, approach and materials yet all are imbued with an incredible skill and wondrous imagination that continues to extend the sense of spectacle and intrigue her artworks generate.
Garry Trinh is an artist working in photography, video, painting and works on paper. He makes art about the uncanny, unexpected and spontaneous moments in daily life. He is inspired by his surroundings and from the vast visual output of mass culture. His works are about a way of looking at the world, to reveal magic in the mundane. He is never bored and never late.
On Wednesday 25 August,Time Pass artists, Mylyn Ngyen and Garry Trinh got together with our Incubate Writers in Residence James W. Goh and Huyen Hac Helen Tran, in conversation with writer Sheila Ngoc Pham. They discussed ideas about place, history and the passing of time.

During Canterbury-Bankstown’s lockdown, the river is as far as we can go. This exhibition reflects through video, sculpture, walks and rows, on a much loved and complex waterway where, every day, no matter what else is happening, the tide comes in and it goes out.
