Sculpture in the Park 


Charles Darwin University (CDU) staff and students will show their work at this year’s Sculpture in the Park, a Darwin Festival event, from 6-13 August.

A biennial event, Sculpture in the Park is a highlight of both the Darwin Fringe Festival (21 July-13 August) and Darwin Festival (10-27 August).

The exhibition will feature the diverse art practice on offer in the Northern Territory, including fibrework, metal work and recycled materials.

Tobias Richardson’s Mystery Service is part of an ongoing inquiry into the peripheries of urban design. His work explores with the interface between function and decoration, and the compromises that each make.

Tobias has exhibited both locally and nationally. He works with a variety of mediums and currently lectures at CDU.

CDU students, Aly de Groot, Imbi Davidson and Adrienne Kneebone, will also have work on display.

Aly’s Transcient Nature celebrates the diversity of cultures and intensity of the Darwin climate, which inspires so many to visit in the cooler months.

Imbi’s work reflects an ongoing interest in repetition within the landscape, especially in the form of termite mounds. Her work, Colonisation, investigates the ecology of the termite mound as a metaphor for human processes of ‘colonisation’.

Adrienne has been working as a fibre artist in the NT for the past seven years. Her work, rough as grass undies, focuses on the feminine; creating domestic and non-domestic artefacts.

CDU students will also be involved in the installation of works at the event.

Sculpture in the Park runs from 6-13 August 2006, all hours daily, in Civic Park, Darwin City. The opening event is on Sunday August 6 at 4pm in Civic Park.
