The highest accolade for contemporary design in Australia, the triennial Rigg Design Prize is awarded to an Australian design practice displaying outstanding creative achievements.
The installation evokes iconic Australian childhood memories: a musk stick-pink screen, rammed earth, lycra and terry towelling detailing. Scattered throughout are cult icons: a pair of thongs, a pack of cigarettes, a used ashtray, a beer can and mozzie coil – all painted white – serving as ghosts frozen in time. An oscillating fan throws a breeze at a single white curtain to assimilate life in an otherwise still frame.
