Make room for whitebait  
pig lard, wax, 2019

Whitebait fast approaching, 2019, Octagon, University of Melbourne.

The sculptural floor work Make room for whitebait captures cast juvenile fish escaping from blocks of pig lard and wax. This project plays with the connection between sculpture and food preparation, and was initiated from a body of research investigating native fish and the cultural locality of seafood across Australasia.
