The Hoffman brick as an urban artifact
Exhibition 26 Aug - 10 Sep 2017
The way we live in our urban environments is changing. As our neighbourhood landscapes grow taller and busier, the changing skyline provokes mixed feelings in our communities and suburbs. The unearthing of the clay, the soil and stone and the collapsing of the bricks and mortar leaves us wondering about the lives and stories which have occupied these sites: the land, the walls and ceilings, the factories and sheds. We wonder who made these bricks that built these walls?
