Camperdown Cemetery


Bo Christian Larsson

Camperdown Cemetery was founded in 1848 and for several decades was Sydney’s main general cemetery. By the time it closed in 1942, nearly 18,000 people had been buried here, including Surveyor-General of NSW Sir Thomas Mitchell and one-time harpist to Napoleon, Nicolas-Charles Bochsa.

Today around 2000 tombstones remain and it is these memorials that inform the sculptural shape of Bo Christian Larsson’s Fade Away, Fade Away, Fade Away, a site-specific workshop and installation that will unfold and grow throughout the course of the Biennale.
