Steve Carr “In Bloom” A collaboration

“In Bloom” at the MCA Sydney is a living sculpture that invites consideration of the often uneasy relationship between nature and industrial ‘progress’. Here, 11 bronze-cast car tyres are stacked in a seemingly random arrangement to form a planter. Following previous iterations in Aotearoa New Zealand, this is the first presentation of In Bloom in Australia. The artist has collaborated with La Perouse-based Aboriginal-owned social enterprise and native plant nursery IndigiGrow. Together, they have made a selection of critically endangered Eastern Suburbs Banksia Scrub species, found in the sandy coastal stretches of Dharawal, Bidjigal and Gadigal Country in Sydney.
