We Won't Need Legs to Stand
Sam Eng

COCA Window Project, Christchurch, 5 June – 8 July 2012


Fatefully tasked with an infinite clean up, an automated industrial cleaner continuously pushes its way through a thick grass obscuring the infinite track it is caught within. Day in and day out – fixed to a path of repetition, the worker proves we won’t need legs to stand... Stay for a while and watch, or wander past at different times of the day as the Sam Eng’s exciting new site-responsive kinetic installation loops 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for the next month, a humbling offering considering its epic surroundings.

This is the second and final of an innovative pair of window exhibitions bringing you a healthy dose of post-quake contemporary art while COCA is closed for remediation.
