Contemporary artist Domenico de Clario defies definition. His holistic inter-disciplinary practice touches on so many points – performance, installation, painting, philosophy, music and poetry. De Clario was born in Trieste, Italy and moved to Melbourne as a child in 1956. 

More recently, he relocated to Dromana to be near his mother at the end of her life. While there, he opened the museum of innocence; a space dedicated to a quality he feels has been lost in modern society. He’d posted a song list inviting the public to select a soundtrack for their own personal experience of the space. Then he serenaded them with their songs.       

His current exhibition at Mars Gallery is titled: walking slowly downhill (sleep, the gorgeous nothings, seven as the reasoning of numbers and the beginner’s song.) Each part of that title represents a strand of the exhibition. Each has deep significance. 

A lifetime academic (PhD in Performance Studies/Victoria University), de Clario has an extensive CV boasting over 300 exhibitions, international residencies, grants and senior level tertiary education posts, but these are not the focus of his artistic existence, de Clario is engaged in the mindfulness of being present. 

With this in mind, he’ll leave Dromana mid-September to embark on a three month solo pilgrimage, Walking Downhill Slowly, traversing the length of the Murray River from its source at Mt. Kosciusko to its mouth at Goolwa, SA as part of the Mildura Palimpsest Biennale. This journey will be an artwork. 

De Clario’s exhibition is at Mars Gallery, 7 James Street, Windsor until October 4. Walking Slowly Downhill will be webcast live at: www.mildurabiennale.com
