Sculpture to Tantalise the Senses: Sculpture by Tom Bass, Carol Crawford, Margo Hoekstra, Eilat Rabin-Rein, Julie Haseler-Reilly, Gunnel Watkins, displayed against a backdrop of Contemporary Painting, including works by Erika Beck | Sheila White | Hendrik Kolenberg | Peter Laverty | Geoff Harvey* | Madeleine Tuckfield-Carrano.
Highlights include the 1.5 metre high Sculpture, "Tribute", shown in the Salisbury Road window at Artsite Gallery. This will be the only time that this work, conceived and executed by Tom Bass with Margo Hoekstra prior to his death in 2010, will be on exhibition prior to its permanent location on the grave of Tom Bass at Macquarie Fields.
This exhibition is unusual in that the majority of sculptures can be touched, and the exhibition title refers to the portable and interactive nature of sculpture that is often overlooked.
Sculpture should be able to be touched and relocated to new positions around the home, office or garden environment, to fully appreciate the joy and pleasure derived in collecting three dimensional objects.
