Claire Healy and Sean Cordeiro are internationally renowned for creating thought-provoking installations that often explore the convergence of the domestic and globalised ways we live. By playfully transforming everyday objects into sculptures and installations, they broach concerns of transience, mobility, material consumption and the effects of a consumer economy on the human and natural environment.
Healy and Cordeiro’s latest installation, The Ugly Stick Orchestra, is based upon the lagerphone, a rudimentary musical instrument, commonly associated with bush bands and gold rush era Australia. An anachronistic object, The Ugly Stick Orchestra explores the artists’ observations and ideas about our historical and environmental relationship with the land.
