Blog post #2: Heide Museum & Sculptures
i’ve neglected this whole blog thing for quite awhile… im gonna have to cram quite a few posts into a couple of days now.
First off, i recently went to the Heidi Museum of modern art; a house-turned-gallery space. Previously owned by the Reed family, you can now walk through the rooms they once lived their lives in, and see the art strewn across the 6-hectare plot of land.
A lot of the art didn’t speak to me too much, aesthetically or subjectively, but it was still a good look into the history of australian art. The artwork i did like were ones that i have seen before, such as Peter Booth’s work. But what really caught my attention was the sculptures scattered across the full expanse of the property, namely the more natural looking pieces (e.g: pictured above)
The way they seemed to fit into the landscape, while still looking out of place enough to draw attention. A better example of this was a warped stump of a tree. At first i didn’t think it was an artwork, because it looked so NATURAL:
im interested in this use of the environment and context to enforce the message of the artwork, i think its a big lesson that can be learned from installation art/public art.
