NICK CAVE: UN­TIL

Art Almanac - - Art In Aus­tralia -

Amer­i­can artist Nick Cave presents ‘UN­TIL’, an ex­hi­bi­tion ex­plor­ing race re­la­tions, gen­der pol­i­tics and gun vi­o­lence in Amer­ica and how these is­sues res­onate in com­mu­ni­ties around the world. Cave’s 12-me­tre long, six-me­tre wide Crys­tal Cloud­scape in­stal­la­tion is a com­mand­ing pres­ence sus­pended from the rafters of Car­riage­works in Syd­ney. The enor­mous chan­de­lier­like sculp­ture weigh­ing five tonne is made of thou­sands of crys­tals, beads and found ma­te­ri­als. Vis­i­tors are in­vited to climb one of four lad­ders to view the myr­iad of ob­jects en­com­pass­ing the top sur­face of the work. Also on view is Hy-Dyve, a 14-chan­nel video, Flow/Blow, a fan­pro­pelled wall of shim­mer­ing my­lar fil­a­ment, and the Beaded Cliff Wall con­structed with mil­lions of plas­tic hair pony beads. On view un­til 3 March 2019.
