Daniel Buren

Time Out (Sydney) - - CITY LIFE -

DANIEL BUREN IS one of France’s lead­ing artists and has ex­hib­ited work at an as­ton­ish­ing ten Venice Bi­en­nales. He’s best known for his site-spe­cific stripe in­stal­la­tions, and there’ll be glimpses of those stripes (which have fea­tured in his art­works since the 1960s) in the mam­moth in­stal­la­tion he’s bring­ing to Car­riage­works. ‘Like Child’s Play’ fea­tures 100 over­sized chil­dren’s wooden block toys ar­ranged into a colour­ful cityscape. It’ll be a lit­tle like step­ping into a Toy

Story movie: the toys that we once played with and held dom­i­nance over as chil­dren now tower high above our heads. The in­stal­la­tion was first shown in 2014 at the Musée d’Art Moderne et Con­tem­po­rain of Stras­bourg, in France. The Syd­ney show­ing is brought to Car­riage­works by Anna Schwartz Gallery. ‘Like Child’s Play’ will be in Bay 21 at Car­riage­works from July 7 and is free to visit.
