NICK CAVE: UNTIL
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.
