    The Buzzer
    30 March - 30 September 2023

    The Buzzer references the nickname of a Russian military radio station, call-sign UVB-76 that has continuously broadcast the same tone and enigmatic coded messages for many years. It speaks from, and reminds us of the era of the Cold War when the threat of nuclear Armageddon and the projection of military power beyond borders was regarded as an ever-present danger. Two months after this work was completed, Russian forces invaded Ukraine.

  • Kate Harvey Sculpture

    Kate Harvey
    Inside Out
    30 March - 30 September 2023

    Inside Out embraces both exterior and interior landscapes and seeks to honour the natural, feminine and domestic. Responding to the environment at The Rodd, Harvey’s sculptures focus on the emptiness of the Granary, reflecting on manual labour, the dependence on the land and the harvest and storage of fodder.

    Dead Standing
    From 30 March

    As fire passes through landscape, we witness loss and destruction and the remains of a sublime beauty inherent in its force. Dead Standing is a new dry garden installation drawing on Australian bushfire narratives, drought resistant planting and the processes of regeneration.
