Tracy Cooper Lavery, Director, Gallery and also Visual Arts, HOTA claims “What a happiness to commission these considerable works by two of Australia’s leading contemporary musicians to welcome visitors into HOTA Gallery. Judy Watson’s collaborative work will produce a common area where we can find out with each other as well as acknowledge the indelible Aboriginal society embedded within, and also throughout our shared country. Ramesh Mario Nithiyendran’s job provides itself to a contemporary Gold Coast ambiance while recognising global spiritual society. These brand-new commissions join our expanding program of exterior art experiences and also highlight our vision to create a location for art– both indoors as well as out.”
Judy Watson says: “The previous lives within us. Ancestor’s dilly bags and baskets held within Australian and also International collections are linked by the memory hairs linking contemporary Aboriginal musicians work, in this situation, Libby Harward and also Elisa Jane Carmichael. The sculptural elements indicate Aboriginal connection and also survival. The eagle feathers shelter and also safeguard, the coverings and stones embedded within the river form take us on a trip. We listen to those that came in the past and also follow them to our future.”
Ramesh Mario Nithiyendran claimed: “The work motions to a series of global resources that link to my social history and modern society. I really hope regional and worldwide site visitors involve with the work by thinking about the significances and importance of idolatry and sculptural monoliths in public areas.”
