A bollard as the new icon of our time

Bollard City by Nina Sanadze Source: Submitted

With Georgian-born artist, Nina Sanadze we discuss her first Melbourne solo exhibition Bollard City. She says that the grim concrete objects remanded her of times when her family was forced to flee Tbilisi in 1992 because of the war and life as refuges in Moscow. Nina says that after emigrating to Australia in 1996 she felt safe and relaxed. But when the concrete bollards started to emerge on the city streets this feeling started to disappear.As artist explains her idea was by creating replicas of different bollards to stimulate a number of questions about realities of the contemporary life in the cities around the World - threat, fear and control but the viewer is invited to find the answers themselves.

Saturday 17 March – Sunday 25 March,
