Maquette for Project 18.

Project 18 : Martin Boyce


Project Overview
For Project 18, Martin Boyce’s new work, We are shipwrecked and landlocked, created a dramatic installation for the courtyard of the Old Melbourne Gaol. A dusty desert landscape was filled with a matrix of sculptures all developed from the same basic shapes – manipulated and reconfigured into different combinations. At once familiar and surreal, the forms recalled the modernist architecture of an urban park, colliding with the 19th-century architecture of their surrounds.
