Fiona Hall: Force Field (all over, red rover)


Castles in the air of the cavedwellers (detail)

And now, everything is in its place, or in its case. The show is open, and the experience of setting up the show is at an end. The book has been launched, the opening has been had.

And so the worlds that hang from the brains of Castles in the Air of the Cave Dwellers are lazily rotating on their strings, to the breath and the airflow of passing crowds, who either stop and stare fascinatedly, or brush past in search of something else to look at.

*sigh*...

On the up side of things, however, I managed to worm my way into the interview that Fiona did with the Australian yesterday... I so like it when people call me a 'young Sydney Artist'... it makes me want to wear shorts and get tipsy and ignore my Business Activity Statement...

I've stashed all the documentation photos of the install process of Fiona Hall: Force Field here.
