Carpet
2010, crushed limestone, site-specific installation, Kelly's Garden Curated Projects, Salamanca Arts Centre, Hobart, Tasmania.

Three tonnes of white crushed limestone is introduced into Salamanca Arts Centre's walled garden that is already laid with 'Tassie Gold' crushed limestone. The carpet of stones seems to fold back on itself to reveal its underside and the earth beneath, so activating the entire space of Kelly's Garden. There is a stairwell in one corner that enables a view from above. This work is documented on video: 'Carpet', 2560x1600, 12 minutes, with sound.
