Mt Pile is a large-scale, site-specific sculptural landscape that delves into the concept of the pile as a metaphor for family. The form is both a pile and a mountain, simultaneously a burden and aspirational. A landscape will be constructed that allows the viewer to both be enveloped in and surrounded by the sculptural forms. There will be several ways to engage the exhibition – through viewership, touch, a ‘shop’, free handouts and workshops, all relevant to the metaphor of family as a pile.
