The Outdoor Studio Installation Project is a residency program completed by Australian artist, Merryn J Trevethan. Seen as a progression of her own creative practice and an approach to incorporate her surroundings within a functional structure, the project is a means of exploring new possibilities.
The structure titled HUFF (House Under Four Flags) is a 10m x 10m wooden sculptural installation and artist’s studio built by artist Marcin Dudek. The intention of the work was to create a functional space; more specifically to define it as an external artist’s studio. In light of the latter, Trevethan is fulfilling its objective and occupying the so-called ‘artist’s studio’ with her own distinctive practice. Elaborating on the notion of spatial awareness, the aim is to introduce the personal to the external. Therefore in some respect the project may be considered a means of public art.
The project will commence on Friday 25th September 2015 and will be an ongoing project until January 2016. The work will grow periodically, allowing all gestural motifs to encapsulate the space over time.
