You may remember the Travelling Colony of seven hand-painted caravans for the 2012 Sydney Festival which explored and celebrated Redfern’s people, culture and community. Well, Brook Andrew is the first to open an exhibit at the Cutaway gallery in the Barangaroo site.
The Weight of History, The Mark of Time, is a large scale installation that promises to play on the senses as the four floating sculptures ‘breath’ and are lit internally adding another dimension. The soundscape accompanying the installation by Theodore Wohng, De Anima, is based on Aristotle’s idea of the soul. We’re a little excited to experience this in the flesh.
You really should experience these giant geometric beauties for yourself. We had a snoop during our lunch hour an can’t wait to get closer on the weekend.

We jumped into Homeat735 last Sunday to have a sneaky peek at what was on the walls.
Savina Hopkins’ latest collage work is intriguing to say the least. With the use of bandaids she has explored the notion that they imply damage, healing, trauma and care. Each portrait’s face’s tones are created from using dressings with various tones, textures, patterns and transparencies.
Check out her page here and hop down to the gallery to see them in the ‘flesh’ [had to squeeze a dad joke in there somewhere!]:
