Installations  Ancestry  [6]


Description: Bronze, glass, stainless steel, sand. 10 Units ‘Ancestry’ investigates the use of multiples in the public domain by establishing tension between the natural world and the artificial. These 10 units emulate a series of Wollemi Pine cuttings disconnected from their original environment and immortalized in bronze. It makes reference to the duality of the species being both a living fossil and a commercialized domestic product. The public artwork creates a narrative where the complexities of globalization, consumption, mass production, cloning, manipulation and preservation co-exist.
