ART DIARY, SYDNEY This month we made the trip to Carriageworks in Sydney’s Eveleigh, to see Zhang Huan’s Sydney Buddha . Standing at over five metres in height and weighing 20 tonnes, the two piece work is an exploration of the cycles of renewal and destruction, and the concept of mortality. One part is made in aluminium and is destined to endure, whilst the second part is made of incense ash and will inevitably erode. We enjoy being challenged by provocative art, and Huan certainly pushes us into uncomfortable territory to explore ideas where religion, poliitcs and the human condition intersect. The exhibition is free to view and runs until March 22nd. Details here.
