Land: Place: Site (variation one)

Exhibition and Shows

22 Mar 2019 to 28 Apr 2019

Originally conceived for Sculpture by the Sea 2018 and now re-imagined for the courtyard of Belconnen Arts Centre, Land: Place: Site (variation one) is a rural overlay upon the urban alignment of the Belconnen Arts Centre Outdoor Gallery. Its intention is less defined as object in place than as a site relocated. It sits within the paradigm of Robert Smithson’s non-site, where minimalism within an exhibition space serves as reference between here and there, open and closed and edge and centre. The work is a fragment, a displacing and repositioning of place through time. From here, as settlers, we temper the vastness of Australia through our own sense of trepidation and systems of boundaries which define variations of land use, ownership and management. It stands as a reminder of the agricultural heritage of Australia, and our need to frame and tame spaces through creating boundaries and fences, while acknowledging the fragility of tenure we have within our places.
