A SCHWARTZ CARRIAGEWORKS PROJECT
THE HORSE TROTTED ANOTHER COUPLE OF METRES, THEN IT STOPPED
Carriageworks has commissioned renowned German artist Katharina Grosse to create a monumental, site-specific installation in response to the unique industrial architecture and scale of Carriageworks. Grosse is internationally renowned for her works of immense scale and kaleidoscopic colour which create sublime and otherworldly environments. Painting directly onto existing architecture, interiors and landscapes she incorporates reams of fabric, mounds of earth and slabs of concrete. Grosse will envelop Carriageworks in more than 8000 square metres of suspended fabric—draped, knotted and hung through the architectural elements of the building. Audiences will be invited to immerse themselves within Katharina Grosse’s epic canvas.
This project is proudly supported by Schwartz Carriageworks, BresicWhitney, Sydney Festival, City of Sydney and Goethe-Institute Australia.
