19 Aug - 30 Sep 2020

A wonderfully festive collaboration between Gerwyn Davies and The Queen Victoria Building in Sydney, with each of these photographs by Davies inspiring a gallery-style display at the iconic QVB.

Gerwyn was also invited to design ‘The 2020 Tree’, an iconic reimagining of their famed Christmas Tree, “a symbol of joy and resilience for a time like no other”.

Inspired by the year its been, the all-new large-scale art piece is a build on QVB’s iconic Christmas tree, but has been made especially for this time. Adorned with everyday objects to bring to life how the ordinary has become extraordinary this year.

Responding to 2020 and the idea of making something magical from our collective mess, he creates nimble and resourceful art pieces out of unassuming icons of the Australian suburban landscape. Reawakening them from their monotony, objects are distorted and warped, playfully modifying the all too familiar to create sculptures and ornaments that glisten, shimmer and shine.
