The Cutaway
The Cutaway is an exhibition and cultural space.
The existing sandstone wall has been lit up dramatically as well as utilising the natural light.
The first exhibition is by Brook Andrew called, StoneThe Weight of History, the Mark of Time.
The four balloon sculptures are meant to act as a "breathing lung-like imaginative environment".

  1. It will be interesting to see how it develops, it all looks so new and sparse. I love that last photo Brona, couldn't be anything else but Australian. I hadn't seen The Cutaway before- interesting.
