'We are shipwrecked and landlocked'

22 October – 30 November 2008

Old Melbourne Gaol, Melbourne

Martin Boyce creates unique new environments, sampling from the vocabulary of 20th-century architecture and design, the built spaces and constructed experiences of contemporary life. For Project 18, 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.
