Terra Firma & Mound Collection

Sanderson Hotel, 50 Berners Street, 18 – 19 Sept, 9am – 9 & 20 Sept, 9am – 6pm

It is incomplete because it exists in a state of perpetual potentiality, one that can be added to, modified, and expanded upon in some way. The imperfections and unfinished aspects of the installation are an integral part of its nature: they reflect the ongoing process of exploration, experimentation, and discovery.
