Homage to Gerald Lewers and Margel Hinder
9 min 45 sec, 1080p video, stereo sound, 2015

 

A homage and meditation on two kinetic sculptures by mid-twentieth century Australian artists. Gerald Lewers' ICI Building Fountain (Melbourne 1958) and Margel Hinder's masterwork, the Civic Park Fountain (Newcastle 1966) are re-presented in detail within the bureaucratic and commercial strictures that surround the works.

Commissioned for the exhibition Sydney Six, Newcastle Art Gallery, Australia.
