Craig Walsh - MONUMENTS
Over the last 30 years, Australian artist Craig Walsh has become widely known for his pioneering works including innovative approaches to projection mapping in unconventional sites.
MONUMENTS represent a haunting synergy between the human form, natural environment and the act of viewing. Moving images transform trees into sculptural monuments surveying the immediate environment. The work aims to challenge traditional expectations of public monuments and the selective history represented in our civic spaces. For WOMADelaide, the installation will pay homage to individuals who have made a significant commitment to the environment.
In order to find the subjects for MONUMENTS at WOMADelaide 2020 we would love to hear from anyone who can suggest a suitable local individual that could be considered a “monument to the environment”.
"The Monuments project aims to celebrate the often quiet but steadfast work of individuals who have contributed to the environment the artwork occupies, be it as a campaigner, a farmer, a gardener, educator, scientist a keeper of community spaces. Monuments to everyday people” – Craig Walsh
If you know of someone who you think merits recognition as a participant in this work please let us know! Nominations close 7 February 2020. The selected subjects will be invited to attend as guests of the festival to view the final artwork.
