Contained

In January I took up a fellow artists offer to make an installation in a shipping container.

WildWildGoose Contained was a 3 month residency by Dagmara in 2 shipping containers next to the Maribrynong Rver in Footscray (Melbourne)
Check put the other work that was created in this space on the Facebook page Wildwildgoosecontained

On the overpass bridge next to the container are two enormous pasted up photos of Uncle Larry, gently watching over us, and those who pass by.

Across the river
a depot of shipping containers
a 24 hour flow of trucks and cranes

Next to us
a freight train line
a constant stream of ‘goods’ coming and going

Beside us
The river
rising and falling with the tide
heading always to the sea
On that sea
containers travelling to and from the port

And woven through this landscape
conversations
about migration
about  refugees
about things

Already hanging in the space was Dagmara’s net with folded boats.
I added a shipping rope curled into a nest with the end of the rope stretched across the wall.
