About this resource

St Clair High School

Duration: 
2:59

Inspired by past Kaldor Public Art Projects artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude and land artist Andy Goldsworthy, the year 10 students of St Clair High School created a temporary, site specific work on the school grounds from recycled blue glass tiles. The lines created by the tiles have a strong geometry and have been made intuitively and organically. The students chose a safe and quiet location at the back of the school for the artwork to act like an oasis, a retreat from the noise of the playground.

Year 7 students of DHSVAD have created their own political party, the eARTh party (the art sits within the earth) out of concern for the environment and the climate change crisis. The public art work included a performative protest march through the annual Dulwich Hill Street Fair; a polling booth for the public to vote and leave a message for local politicians; and an exhibition of the protest material at the Seaview Gallery. The project has been supported by the school's P&C and the Inner West Council.

The students want the audience to know what it is like to live and walk the streets in Wilcannia and to create a sense of the shared experience through the public artwork. The imagery has been informed by students understanding of rock art and street art. They have been guided throughout the process by leading Indigenous artist and elder Badger Bates and Australian artist, Justine Muller, in the creation of a culturally relevant artwork illustrating connection to country, specifically the Baaka (Darling River).
