Group show: Five Artists One Role, 2011
Outsourced captures the movements of a young seal engaging with the surrounding pier structure. I was interested in how the animal repeatedly mimicked the form of the pylons of Rye pier, its adopted environment in Port Phillip Bay, Melbourne. In line with the theme of the exhibition, I placed a large roll of brown paper beneath the sea under the pier for one month in the lead up to the exhibition. When I went to retrieve the outsourced artwork it had been removed in a local cleanup.
