Still Life of a Murray Cod

Sculpture & Objects

Finalist

Murray River salt, 6cm x 12cm x 44cm
 
The work is made entirely from the groundwater salt intercepted in an effort to prevent it reaching the Murray River system. It draws on still life aesthetic traditions, while also referencing very contemporary concerns regarding the impacts human activity is having on the health of our rivers and food security.
