EXHIBITIONS: ONE PAST LIVERPOOL
28 Sep 2019 - 10 Nov 2019 | 9.00am - 4.00pm
One Past Liverpool recognises that ‘this place’ is never still, static or fixed; instead, it is always growing and always pushing at the boundaries of what you think it might be becoming.
Join us for the Official Exhibition Launch on Saturday 28 September (2pm-4pm) and the Anniversary Event on Saturday 26 October. Admission is free and all are welcome to attend.
Sally Gray and Ron Smith Casula Colossi, 1998. Image courtesy of artist.
In 1998 Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre commissioned Ron Smith and Dr Sally Gray to create a concept for a permanent site-specific installation at Casula Railway Station. 'Casula Colossi' recalls the riverside ‘pleasure gardens’ that brought hundreds of people to the river and train station between 1910 - 1950.
“We wanted to create something so fabulous (fabled) that people couldn't miss it. We wanted to re-establish a sense of arrival at a special place. We wanted a design which was friendly, accessible, inclusive and delightful. We wanted something which would get people talking about Casula as a special locality.” (Dr Sally Gray and Ron Smith, 1999)
This public work was never constructed. It only exists as the artists’ render.
