Exhibition: Cast in cast out

Artist Peter Waples-Crowe Language Group: Ngarigo, Southeast region With Rhian Hinkley and composer Harry Covill Commissioned by ACMI

The Museum of Sydney presents Cast in cast out, is inspired by Sydney-based Kamilaroi/Gamilaraay artist Dennis Golding’s experiences and childhood memories of growing up in ‘The Block’, an Aboriginal community in the inner Sydney suburb of Redfern. The artwork ‘recasts’ Victorian-era ironwork panels – a distinctive feature of many 19th-century houses in Redfern – as contemporary expressions of power and ownership.

The display is accompanied by a 3D-printed replica of one of the panels, to give visitors an opportunity to feel its shapes and textures, as well as a filmed interview in which Golding discusses Cast in cast out and its genesis.
