Bag Hut explores shifts in memory, time and place. While memory fogs individual perception, the landscape embraces all. The family tree, burdened by its own weight, drops a branch here and there. The work references the temporary depression-era hut built by my grandfather in Kandos in 1923. He moved across from Hill End, seeking work in the local mines and eventually the cement works. Bag Hut is a site-specific installation sourcing local materials similar to those my grandfather used. The site shares the same aspect as the original structure, looking out to Cherry Tree Hill with Mount Rocky behind.
