  • About

    This installation is a variation on a set of heads on poles that originally stood out from the wall in a row. Here they are seen in a more condensed form and they are accompanied by a sound track. This is in keeping with a series of sculptural works that include performance and sound.

    The recordings are of Evangelical Congregations around Sydney, Pacific Island groups and others.
