"Discover Claire Healy and Sean Cordeiro’s spirit of adventure and their uncanny ability to transform the everyday into something extraordinary in this first major museum survey in Australia showcasing some of their most significant pieces as well as a newly-commissioned sculpture. Be awed and intrigued by their playful reinvention of prefabricated structures and the conversion of everyday objects into phenomenal sculptures and installations. Discover how these immense works also broach concerns relevant to people’s daily lives, such as the cost of living, problems of overpriced real-estate, the need for space, consumerism and the desire for things to be better in the future than they are today--" Limited to 500 copies. First Edition in slipcase. pp. 80 colour plates. #0320

Tucked away on a quiet street in Blackheath is one of Australia’s leading artist duos, Claire Healy and Sean Cordeiro. A large studio in their back garden is the fertile nerve centre where tiny sparks enter the world and grow up to become incredible, often immense, artworks. The work is conceived by the collaborating twosome who are known for creating evocative, thought-provoking, complex pieces that challenge societal issues of consumption. Their diverse and expanding choice of mediums range from planes, cars and houses to skeleton replicas, household items and even Lego and IKEA furniture, resulting in extraordinary sculptures, deconstructions, assemblages and installations. Healy and Cordeiro have a unique partnership, living and working together, while also raising their young family.
