Sydney Festival at Carriageworks, Eveleigh


Carriageworks has unveiled major new artworks commissioned from leading Australian contemporary artists. In 2020 the Redfern multi-arts precinct will house immersive and participatory large-scale art installations by Rebecca Baumann, Daniel Boyd, Kate Mitchell, open from 8 January. These installations will be presented free to the public, opening as part of the Sydney Festival and continuing throughout the year.

Radiant Flux is Rebecca Baumann’s response to the unique light and space of Carriageworks’ architecture. Spanning over 100 metres in length and nearly 15 metres high, every glass surface of the building’s exterior has been covered by Baumann with dichroic film. This luminous material simultaneously transmits tones of blue, magenta and yellow, and reflects gold, green and blue. When viewed from different angles the colour range shifts dynamically, ensuring the work is never experienced in the same way twice.

Daniel Boyd is a Kudjala/Gangalu artist who works across painting, video and installation. VIDEO WORKS is a site-specific reconfiguration of three major video installations produced by the artist between 2012-18.

VIDEO WORKS proposes an immersive journey through time and space, an experience that simultaneously evokes the molecular properties of matter and the expansiveness of the universe.

All Auras Touch presents a snapshot of contemporary Australia in colour. Taking the Australian and New Zealand Standard Classification of Occupations as the starting point, artist Kate Mitchell will photograph the aura of one representative for each of the 1023 officially recognised occupations. Captured using the Aura Camera 6000 – an ‘electromagnetic field imaging camera’ invented by American innovator Guy Coggins in the 1970s – each aura portrait will replace an occupation placeholder. As each job title is swapped out over the course of the exhibition, all auras touch.
