Deakin University contemporary small sculpture award 2011 started Yesterday.
The winner : Stephen Bird, for his work Boxers.
Stephen says, 'My ceramic works locate themselves in an invented world where dissonant cultural idioms come together to form a language I have coined Industrial Sobotage. I use humour, propaganda, trompe l'oeil and meaningless violence to re-tell archetypal myths and make observations about complex collective issues, including politics, cultural imperialism and the global power struggle.'
This $10,000 award is sponsored by the School of Management and Marketing, Faculty of Business and Law, Deakin University, and organised by the Deakin University Art Collection and Galleries unit.
