New installation by Daniel Buren makes its Australian debut with Carriageworks
3 July 2018
Carriageworks in Sydney, Australia presents the Australian premiere of Daniel Buren's installation Like Child's Play, opening on 7 July.
Inspired by the German education theorist Friedrich Wilhelm August Fröbel’s famous children’s wooden block toys, Buren's installation features more than 100 upscaled blocks, arches, triangles and pediments. The work plays with scale so that objects, that as children, we towered over, now dwarf us.
Carriageworks Director, Lisa Havilah, said: "This seminal installation by Daniel Buren at Carriageworks represents an opportunity for Australian audiences to experience the work one of France’s most renowned conceptual artists in Australia."
The exhibition continues until 18 August 2018.
