17th Biennale of Sydney

About this Project

For the 17th Biennale of Sydney in 2010, Tri-Point assisted with this art installation on behalf of Chinese artist Caio Gui-Qiang.

The installation consisted of nine cars rigged in an animated sequence of explosion along the roof of Turbine Hall on Cockatoo Island, Sydney.

Each identical white vehicle appeared frozen in an arc of detonation, blast, launch, timbling, gravitational return and rest.

The cars were pierced with pulsing rods of light.
