Carriageworks: Home To Two Incredible Free Art Installations For A Limited Time

Although Sydney Festival has come and gone for another year, there are still art installations to see. And at least two that are free.

And good news! Both of them are at Carriageworks.

VIDEO WORKS, the exhibition of three major video installations by Sydney-based Kudjala/Gangalu artist Daniel Boyd, confronts viewers with what has become Boyd’s signature style, a fusion of aboriginal-dot painting and pointillism – the painting technique of applying paint in carefully placed dots of pure, unmixed colour.

Mapped out across the walls then, viewers are taken on a cosmic journey through composition and colour back to a distant time almost as if they were face to face with the night sky and all that it evokes.

VIDEO WORKS is comprised of A Darker Shade of Dark #1-4 (2012), History is Made at Night (2013) and Yamani (2018) and has been soundtracked by Boyd’s long-time collaborators, Canyons.

It can be experienced up until March 1.

In the main foyer of Carriageworks, visitors will be immersed in colour thanks to every window and skylight being clad in dichroic film, a dynamic material that reflects the opposite colours to that which are in transmission, and shifts colours when viewed from different angles.

Radiant Flux, Rebecca Baumann’s site-specific response to the unique light and space of the Carriageworks building, gives every visitor their own personal and exclusive journey in space and colour. And regardless of the number of times they return, each visit will clad them in a distinct light.

Running up until June 14, visitors could catch Radiant Flux now and then again in late Autumn to see how the space has altered.
