Cockatoo Island installation

20 April – 3 June 2007

Cockatoo Island, Sydney

Urs Fischer works across a wide range of media to create poetic drawings, objects and installations, handcrafted forms that often show the pencil marks, seams and folds of their construction. Fischer created a series of new works for his ambitious installation on Cockatoo Island for Project 15. In 2007, before most visitors had been to this haunting island in Sydney harbour, Fischer invited them to experience the old convict prison grounds as the stage for an eerie installation of enigmatic sculptures and carnival hall forms. A strange, dreamlike experience, the works seemed to manifest absent figures and evoke the island’s past.
