About the Touring Exhibition
UNIVERSITY OF QUEENSLAND ART MUSEUM
6 April – 28 July 2013
Claire Healy and Sean Cordeiro are Australian artists who transform the residue of consumer society, re-imagining the forms and systems that surround us. Interrogating ideas of home, aspiration, mobility and the acquisition of material goods, their work is characterised by a playful reinvention of prefabricated structures and the assemblage of everyday objects into extraordinary sculptures and installations. Healy and Cordeiro’s first museum survey, this exhibition brings together a selection of key works from the past 10 years. Demonstrating the depth and diversity of their practice, it comprises both monumental and intimate pieces in a variety of media including sculpture, installation and photography.
