There’s nothing funny about terrorism! On the one hand concrete bollards serve as grave monuments to violence, and to ongoing terrorist threat. On the other hand, the three-tonne objects ironically have become omnipresent and invisible, steadily embedded into the logic of our architecture.

Blockage is a series of three temporary, public sculptural installations to be exhibited simultaneously in key locations throughout St Kilda from Thursday, 28th of March until Sunday 28th of April, 2019.
– Bollard Up a Tree, which makes a direct reference to John Kelly’s Cow Up a Tree sculpture, as well as William Dobell’s role of painting camouflage cows during WWII, will be installed on the live gumtree in front of St Kilda Town Hall.
– Building Blocks, three concrete bollards playfully levitating like toy blocks, will be erected at Acland Court.
– Safeguard, which operates as a pseudo coin-operated city viewfinder and a defunct surveillance apparatus, will be placed on St Kilda beach, between St Kilda Peer and the Beachcomber Cafe.
