Nomadic City: lest we forget
April 2014
15meter x 18meters
Plastic, Bamboo, Grass

University of Western Sydney Sculpture Awards 2014 Materials: plastic, bamboo, grass, soil, fabric This is a commemorative/memorial work and challenges the tradition of monumental structures. As an ephemeral, transient installation reflective of the communities it remembers, “Nomadic City: lest we forget” invites the viewer to participate and engage with the escalating world issue of community displacement, whether caused by changes in the climate, social and religious conflict/wars or economic environments. This work is informed by issues relating to the adaption of humanity to an increasing society of nomadic communities forced from their homes to survive a life of insecurity and vulnerability in search for a new home.
