Crash but no burn... yet!

What an appropriate metaphor for (at least some) recent times!

The old BGC/Bunnings building at the bottom of Subi is no more. It was demolished this week.

The white wall with the ticket machine I shot and exhibited in 2004 was just one of it's faces. A huge and immaculate whitewashed wall that seemed to magically appear out of nowhere. It truly looked quite unreal in the right light.

The vier series that was exhibited at Kurb was shot inside the building. It was used as all day car parking for quite a while and the previous offices were easily accessible. I visited the site twice for the series and by the time I'd returned the second time - as it always seems to be - it had been significantly vandalised.
