Groundworks breaks new ground

Sydney has a voracious apetite for real estate. It drives anxiety levels and road rage. The complexities of the city, born from a convict past and now a real estate haven, are somewhat unravelled in this exhibition at Gaffa Galleries, Sydney. From the archives of the 200 year old Government Architects Office, Groundwork developed into several projects, curated by Joni Taylor of the New Landscape Institute running over a 2 week period. 1-12 October 2015. Along with artist-led walks, owner occupier public architecture in Martin Place, there was a picnic at Kutti Beach, Vaucluse, highlighting the privatising creep into public land. Huge inflatable letters, spelling SPACE, were floated out into the harbour to demonstrate Watertopia’s message on a broiling hot Spring day.
