27 Mar Cameron Robbins at the National 2021
Cameron Robbins’ new artwork, Oenograf, has been installed and forms part of The National 2021 – a contemporary art exhibition held at the Museum of Contemporary Art, in Sydney. The exhibition runs from 26 March until 22 August 2021, and this collaboration between Cameron and Gilles Lapalus (from Maison Lapalus) is a must see.
In Cameron’s own words: ‘a newly commissioned kinetic drawing instrument slowly transcribing CO2 emissions from fermenting grapes/wine making. drawings about 5 days in length . The wine is called #nebsyrmour from the 3 grapes used…we have 400 liters in cold storage and delivering 40 per fortnight to MCA over 4 months to keep this chugging along. There will be bottling and tastings later on TBC.’
While you are at the MCA, don’t forget to visit the Loti Smorgen Sculpture Terrace to see the newly unveiled Wind Anolog. This spectacular new work is on the Terrace overlooking Circular quay, the opera house and bridge and will run for approximately two years. Wind Anolog creates a large scale drawing in graphite onto a white marble egg-shaped slab as the winds ebb and flow, representing wind strength and direction in an accumulating drawing over the months in all weathers.
