BY SUSAN HAWKINS
In Between the River and the Cliff, artist Susan Hawkins asks us to clamber upon the past to consider the present. A collection of interactive sculptural pieces made from decommissioned telecommunication equipment, parabolic dishes sit ready to translate human interactions into aural transmissions. The work has been inspired by the transformation of Howard Smith Wharves from a place of industry and labour, to recreation and leisure and seeks to weave our activities of today back into the histories that preceded us.
Join us at the Artist Talk and Poetic Response to learn about the development of the work from the artist Susan Hawkins, and hear a poetic response from Kate Woodcroft.
