The towels of the artist’s immediate and extended family, local balconies, dimensions variable, 2001-2003
Terratowel seeks to metaphorically re unite my family through bringing
together their towels. freighted in from Malta, Canada, Darwin, Melbourne and Hobart, each of the 120 towels belong to (and so serve to represent) an individual member of my immediate and extended family.
With the permission of residents, the towels were ‘exhibited,’ on the balconies, visible from the street, so as to suggest that my family are residing together by the sea.
Terratowel has been exhibited in Hobart, Sydney and Canberra.
