VIEW FROM THE SIXTY-THIRD FLOOR: PORT ARTHUR

Elizabeth Day, View from the Sixty-Third Floor, 2005, washed grass roots, instant turf, excavated grave. Installation view, Sculpture by the Sea, Port Arthur, TAS.

“The carpet works are both on the ground and simultaneously floating. They describe a contemporary subjective condition. One that is never and always at home, in process, in transit, but absent from Australia but here. Here and there. Inside and outside. Both.” Excerpt from Elizabeth Day, The Black, 2012.
