Metamorphous

Description: Approx. 3,000 factory offcuts; dimensions variable; Australian Centre for Contemporary Art Foyer, Melbourne Concept Statement: This collaborative site specific public art project was created by the artist with the collaboration of newly arrived migrants/refugees as part of ACCA's Multicultural Arts Program. The organic form investigates the concepts of transformation and transcendence. Redefining the object, the artist makes reference to our own human capacity to re-create ourselves to become someone more complete, transcending our own limitations. This work was also exhibited at McClelland Gallery and Sculpture Park, La Trobe University LUMA, The incinerator Arts Complex, The Toyota Community Spirit Gallery and is always evolving and responding to a new site. 2009
