Kolaj Sculpture  

A three-dimensional interpretation of the Kolaj series designed for the South Place Hotel window.

 

A floating painting with a void, subverting the relationship between the 'frame' and 'art'. A new perspective from both the street and the lobby space of the hotel.  A voyeuristic adventure that questions the civic and private spaces within the city, by reshaping the liminal.

 

The marble echoes the materials that are of the surrounding buildings of financial power and authority, and seeks to re-contextualise it back into the realm of sculpture.

 

The scale and shape of the piece not only mimic the language of a cash machine, but the void in the centre of the sculpture directly references 'a hole in the wall'.
