Falling Fence

John Gollings with Samantha Slicer 2001

Extending the traditions formed in the 1970s of earthworks and environmental art, 'Falling Fence' is the first major sculptural work by internationally acclaimed Melbourne based photographer John Gollings and his assistant Samantha Slicer. The work has been designed specifically for its site on the Northern bank of the island. Its compatibility with the environs will only be enhanced through further native planting and the mellowing of the cypress pine timber as, over time, it merges and is absorbed into the landscape. Officially launched in October 2001.
