Change can be challenging. It requires us to shift expectations and find new solutions. Change can also bring renewal, the prospect of encountering exciting and unimagined opportunities. Spring Bay Mill has begun the process of converting the old woodchip mill site at Triabunna into a centre of environmental and cultural exchange, set within a botanical garden. Using the mill’s large-scale industrial environment as its canvas, Reorder takes advantage of this unique moment to examine the transition from one form of enterprise to another. Six site-specific installations have been created in response to particular locations at the Spring Bay Mill site, utilising found materials and the power of this complex landscape.
Bronte Booth recovers discarded wood, David Hamilton reassembles the remnant chip pile, Ed King forges redundant rusted machine parts, Jacob Leary redefines systems and processes, Serena Rosevear and Isis St Pierre reconfigure documents and their human traces, and Tricky Walsh reconstitutes stuff into imaginary machines.
