Talk – The context and bodily terrain of Ranjani Shettar’s installations

Peter Cripps, artist and Senior Lecturer, Sculpture, RMIT

Over a forty year period, Peter Cripps’ practice of object based works and sculptural installations have continued to explore the relationships between object and display, context and the evolution of interpretation from one pe­riod to the next.  Cripps has worked in Australian museums, galleries, universities and the related art industry since the 1970s and has taught sculpture in the School of Art at RMIT since 1989. His work is held comprehensively in the collections of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney, Australian National Gal­lery, Canberra and most state galleries in Australia, as well as numerous corporate and private collec­tions internationally.
