What happens when we slow down the processes of perceiving and making? What might be discovered when we stretch, still, or even freeze, the passage of time. Slowness presents works from the Monash University Collection exploring qualities of inner reflection, quiet, poise and stillness. The exhibition offers a series of metaphysical propositions: highly deliberate studies of objects in the world and their relation to the body.
