Somewhere Other Model

Dimensions: varies

Limited Edition Run:  Bespoke commission

Materials:  Spotted Gum

Applications: Architectural Scale Model

We were commissioned by John Wardle Architect's to produce several scale models of their 2018 Venice Bienale pavilion 'Somewhere Other'. The model is constructed from solid Spotted Gum (to match the full scale pavilion) and it required multiple, custom clamping and cutting jigs to cut and assemble to acute, tapered forms.

"A cantilevered cone at one end of the installation tapers to a viewing portal, one inspired by two very different masks: Venetian carnival masks and the horizontal eye slit in legendary bushranger Ned Kelly’s iron-armour helmet (and through this to Sidney Nolan’s engagement with the Australian landscape)."
