Untitled, from Vault, March 1990.
The Foundry, Leichhardt, Sydney.
Installed plaster forms in a group exhibition of site specific works mediated by Zylvia Auerbach.
"There was a high wall in the Leichhardt Foundry building with a dry white surface, and two openings, one a horizontal window to what was once a servery and the other a vertical doorway into the water meter room under the stairs. The wall also had graffiti and several pipes going into it. I cast two plaster blocks reinforced with hessian, each the size of one opening, and made a handle for each, secured at the back with a board of wood. They resembled finger drawers and plasterers trowels, slightly confusing the scale and nature of the space."
