This exhibition reveals one of the most dynamic yet underrated sculptural practices in Australian art in the mid 20th century.Margel Hinder (1906-95) initially worked in woodcarving in the 1930s but by the early 1950s she shifted to an abstract sculptural language that explored form, space, light and movement. She created commanding kinetic works whose slow rotations encapsulate a sense of the world in perpetual motion. Hinder also had an important career as a public sculptor, creating some of Australia's most significant outdoor monuments which incorporated the movement of water into her sculptural forms. The exhibition will include an immersive installation that reconstructs in lifescale several of her most significant works to convey their power and complexity to audiences.
