in 'the Urban Orchard', Perth Cultural Centre
Ephemeral public artwork commissioned by EPRA and DCA,
curated by Consuelo Cavaniglia
minimal and lively, this work brings fluorescent coloured bird houses and animal traps to the urban orchard.
Engaging as sculptural forms these small interventions can be read on a number of levels, from insights into taming nature, nurture/destruction, to considerations on the structure of our urban dwellings and references to modernist aesthetics.
