Great Fences of Australia
20 January - 1 February 2004
Entrance Court, Ground Level

All fences are potential instruments to Jon Rose and Hollis Taylor. Specialising in new music, they have played (and photographed) fence wires across Australia, including the Dingo Fence and Rabbit-Proof Fence. The long strings are resonators making ethereal and elemental sounds that travel the length of the wires. Performances daily at 1pm and (except Wednesdays) at 4pm.

Note: this installation will be temporarily removed on Wednesday evenings (21, 28 Jan.) for Art After Hours programmes.
