GO WEST FOR PROJECT 28

Jan 17, 2014  ·  2 min read

By Benjamen Judd

 

For most of us who live in the inner circles of Sydney’s suburbs we tend to forget that the city of Sydney is in fact much bigger than just Surry Hills and Darlinghurst.

As part of the Sydney Festival, our westerly neighbour Parramatta is to be the site for highly acclaimed Slovakian artist, Roman Ondák.

Hard on the heels of the extraordinary 13 Rooms project, Kaldor Public Art Projects presents a trio of performative works by Roman Ondák, one of the most important artists of our time.

The historic Parramatta Town Hall hosts Swap (2011), the riveting interactive chain of barter and exchange that delighted 13 Rooms audiences and Measuring the Universe (2007), previously presented to great acclaim at MoMA, New York, and Tate St Ives, Britain. A brand new work, Terrace will be created especially for Parramatta.

The internationally celebrated Slovakian artist merges art with experiences of everyday life, challenging our perceptions with his poetic ideas and often humorous interventions. Ondák’s work relies on public participation in the discreet dislocation of objects, ideas and actions from their usual settings. Make your mark at Project 28!

This is a free exhibition and well worth the train trip out (there are some lovely parks and great restaurants along the mall) and will run until Friday, January 24.
