There are very few art philanthropists in Sydney, Australia, and probably even fewer who commission works. Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation (SCAF) is one of them, White Rabbit another who specialises in Chinese works.
The two current installations at SCAF deal with temporal space and structures but from quite different perspectives. Owner Occupy concerns itself with affordable housing issues and the visitor temporarily inhabiting a space. Sway is part of SCAF’s Fugitive Series and references the Israeli sukkah form but drawing on contemporary materials. Exhibitions that draw you into spaces are always going to be engaging. The wall map of Sydney and housing desirability areas is very clever and highlights the fatuousness of the real estate market in the city.
