Soft soil between our toes and jagged rocks underfoot. Are they fossil fuel deposits ripe for exploitation or sacred Dreaming sites?
José Da Silva, UNSW Galleries Director, provides an intimate account of Debra Porch’s life and work, along with her enduring interests in literature, walking and the potential of art to transform the everyday into the extraordinary. The talk takes its title from Art Work (It Is Always Changing . . .) 1970 by American artist Robert Barry that describes art in general and the permutations that occur in installation practice.
