Continuing a series of works that Australian artist Martine Corompt has been producing since 2010, Torrent is a mesmerising multi-screen animation that explores the flow of water as an allegorical force. Using simple white and black graphics, we see water trickling, pouring and cascading down the walls, swirling onto the floor then finally draining away to nothing.

The hypnotic visuals are accompanied by an original harp score produced by Philip Brophy, an arrangement that plays on—and against—the traditional associations between the timbre of the harp and the imagery of gently swirling water.
