Crossing the Floor
Crossing the Floor (this hall breathes) is an installation that reveals the rich artistic investigations that have informed Robbie Rowlands' newly commissioned sculpture for the Broadmeadows Town Hall redevelopment project. Rowlands’ site-specific practice engages directly with the structure and fabric of the hall, revealing qualities that sit on the periphery of our awareness, often unseen. This exhibition was staged in the Supper Room space of the Broadmeadows Town Hall, soon to be closed for renovation as part of hall’s $23 million redevelopment. In addition to site-specific video and sound works developed through the research period, it featured a delicately cut section of the supper room floor that reveals the preserved subsurface of the Hall’s fifty-year history.
This project was delivered by Hume City Council, in partnership with Kerstin Thompson Architects and RMIT Centre for Art, Society and Transformation (CAST).
