Thing we love – 281

Exhibition-goers at Carriageworks were asked to document unused public spaces on a map of Sydney to create a new artwork at Sydney’s Biennale. With answers from, ‘Annandale’, to ‘Leichhardt Police Station’ to ‘Our Nightlife’ the exercise obviously provided a sticking point for punters.

The Post-It note collection is part of ‘The Mosquito Project’, an exhibition that documents the research of Taiwanese artist Yao Jui-chung who spent four years travelling around Taiwan photographing derelict public spaces, which are satirically called ‘Mosquito Pavilions’ in Taiwan.

A poignant exhibition, given the Eveleigh Rail Yards site also fell into disuse for over a decade.

The 20th Biennale of Sydney continues until June 5th
