‘Inconvenience Store’

Exhibited in Batlow from January to June 2022

Artist Statement

‘Inconvenience Store’ is like an average convenience store, the only difference is this store is full of found objects washed up on Sydney’s eastern suburbs beaches and nothing is for sale.

This Shop Art Project is part of the Snowy Valleys Sculpture Trail which launched on 5 May, 2022 with sculptures in seven locations across 100km in Adelong, Batlow, Courabyra Wines, Johansen Wines, Tumbarumba, Obsession Wines and Tooma.  Funded by the Bushfire Local Economic Recovery Fund of the NSW government.
