NO BIG COAL opened Wednesday 2 May 6-8pm at Factory 49,49 Shepherd St Marrickville NSW and will remain open until Saturday 12 May (open Thursdays - Saturdays 1-6pm).

At the beginning of the opening night, the cardboard and felt shapes were stacked with their walls as an invitation to the audience to use them to imagine or make other spatial arrangements. Audience manipulation of the shapes is invited to emphasise the work's acknowledgement of the actual space in which it is located, and to exploit the potential that artwork has to act as a model for a revaluation of the physical environment generally.
