The Helen Lempriere National Sculpture Award, 2004, Werribee Park.


The original complete Citroen has been stripped back to a shell, reformed and sealed. The viewer recognises evidence of the original, but the duality unveils an uneasy second impression, one that questions prior knowledge of function and the ability to access this. Citroen Pod aims to bring awareness to the nature of our relationship with the automobile, its social and environmental impact, its place in the future and the value we place on it today.
