Undulating Remnants

New Norfolk Police Station Grant

Undulating Remnants is keeping the history of the New Norfolk Police Station at its original site, within the walls of its replacement. Strengthening the sense of place and past. The work exhibits remnants of historical police files from the site, moulded and scrunched to emulate the landscape that surrounds the Police Station, which has existed there since the colonial settlement. The relics embodied into the artwork become part of the landscape and the landscape part of the artwork. Both the sculpture and the window graphic are developed from drone footage, taken from the landscape that exists behind both the north west and south east perspectives. They reflect the corresponding landscape that exists behind each side of the building. Undulating Remnants is embedded with relics of evidence, and secrets in the folds, personifying the watchful surrounds, as if the hills had eyes.
