Carly Fischer’s latest sculptural installation reflects on how corporations market products towards culturally, environmentally and politically aware Australians. Drawing on the protest song by Paul Kelly and Kev Carmody, her installation questions whether cultural resistance can escape being appropriated, commodifed and sold back to us as gentrifed lifestyle packages. Products and cultural objects are referenced, reassembled, remixed and reconstructed as strange hybrid sculptural propositions.
