Mining the repositories of memory, Anne O'Callaghan reconstructs the natural and human histories issuing from this site. In Relic of Memory, domestic and architectural structures fabricated from contemporary industrial materials are introduced into the environment.
The materiality of Tim Whiten's composite piece is reduced to the essential element of his chosen site: the Pre-Cambrian shield. Danse includes two skeletal figures sand-blasted into the rock. Rendered on the slope of a hill, the first figure is dark and visible from a distance, beckoning us towards the second which lies on higher ground. The joints of these life-sized images are deftly articulated, while the veins of the granite crisscross within the etched boundaries of the bones, enhancing the gestural vitality of the figures.
