In the Summer of 2020 Carriageworks will present four large-scale installations by leading Australian artists Rebecca Baumann, Daniel Boyd, Kate Mitchell and Reko Rennie. Each work is immersive, participatory and site-specific, engaging with the unique history and architecture of the Carriageworks precinct

Rebecca Baumann: Radiant Flux

Radiant Flux is Rebecca Baumann’s response to the unique light, space and architecture of Carriageworks. Spanning over 100 metres, Baumann will cover every glass surface of the building’s exterior in dichroic film, a material that shifts colour when viewed from different angles. The result will be a kaleidoscopic world that is never the same twice.

Reko Rennie: REMEMBER ME

REMEMBER ME is a monumental illuminated work from Kamilaroi artist Reko Rennie, which will be exhibited at Carriageworks for the whole of 2020, the year marking the 250th anniversary of Captain Cook’s first landfall. The work is a searing reminder of the frontier wars, the massacres and the survival of the real sovereigns of this country, the Aboriginal people of Australia.

Kate Mitchell: All Auras Touch

All Auras Touch is a snapshot of contemporary Australia revealed through human energy fields. Kate Mitchell will capture an aura portrait for each of the 1,023 census-recognised occupations. All Auras Touch reminds us that we are all energetic beings made up of the same matter.

Daniel Boyd: Video Works

Video Works is an immersive composite of three major video installations by Sydney-based Kudjala/Gangalu artist Daniel Boyd. Gallery walls will be mapped with Boyd’s infinite cosmos of dynamic compositions, creating an experience that is otherworldly and grounded, expansive and atomic.
