We love Carriageworks and their free artwork - it's always a feast for the eyes and the kids just love exploring the larger than life displays. This Summer of 2020 Carriageworks will present four large-scale installations by leading Australian artists Rebecca Baumann, Daniel Boyd, Kate Mitchell and Reko Rennie. Each work is immersive, participatory and site-specific, engaging with the unique history and architecture of the Carriageworks precinct. Details as follows:

  • Rebecca Baumann: Radiant Flux Spanning over one-hundred metres in length, Baumann will cover every glass surface of the Carriageworks exterior and skylights in dichroic film, a dynamic material that shifts colour when viewed from different angles and transmits the opposite chromatic spectrum to what it reflects. The result will be a spectacular immersion into a kaleidoscopic world of colour and light that responds continuously to the environmental conditions around it. 

  • Daniel Boyd: VIDEO WORKS Sydney-based Kudjala/Gangalu artist Boyd's immersive composite of three major video installations will map the walls of the gallery with an infinite cosmos of dynamic compositions and prismatic colour. Set to a remixed soundtrack by long-time music collaborators Canyons, VIDEO WORKS is an abstracted journey through time immemorial, and a gesture to the impermanence of life on this planet. 
  • Kate Mitchell: All Auras Touch Taking the Australian and New Zealand Standard Classification of Occupations as the starting point, Mitchell will photograph the aura of one representative for each of the 1023 recognised occupations – capturing a snapshot of contemporary Australia to remind us that we are all energetic beings made up of the same matter. 
  • Reko Rennie: REMEMBER ME A monumental illuminated text work by the Melbourne-based Kamilaroi artist and an adaption of an urban space as a site of protest, politics and poetry. 2020 marks the 250th anniversary of Captain James Cook’s first landfall at Botany Bay and the HMB Endeavour’s charting of the East Coast of Australia. In a national climate currently marred by tension and division as to how this history is acknowledged, REMEMBER ME is a searing reminder of the frontier wars, the massacres and the survival of the real sovereigns of this country, the Aboriginal people of Australia.
