 ​​Ken Unsworth Maquettes and Small Sculptures opening invitation.pdf


​Since 1972 Ken Unsworth AM has been making maquettes and small sculptures some have been realised on a large scale as public art works including NIKE in Wollongong built in 1979 launched in 1980. All of these works have an element of balance and apparent instability that relates to the performances he created in the 1970s all of which generate a degree of anxiety due to their apparent danger of collapse. 


The photos and video of these early performances are included in the exhibition. From the late 1970s to today Ken has made many kinetic installations the first of which was 'A Different Drummer’ 1976. The animated figures are included in the exhibition and video of the l performance is also on display​
