West Entrance 02
Edition of 35

Artist print edition titled West Entrance 02 showing a site-specific intervention created at the Art Gallery of New South Wales (AGNSW). Harnessing the healing properties of charcoal to detoxify, energise, repair and revive the space around it.

The ephemeral installation West Entrance 02 was created by the artists on Saturday 20 March, 2021. At six meters in diameter and made entirely from charcoal, it sat in harmony with the grand entrance stairs on the western perimeter of the AGNSW. Installed for only a few hours, this work was witnessed by those who chanced a visited to the Gallery that day. The artists captured this moment and present it as a photographic print, the artwork hung alongside ‘Regenerator’ as part of The National 2021: New Australia Art.

Charcoal has the unique ability to absorb impurities from the air around it. In Bae’s native South Korea it’s used domestically for this purpose. To revive the charcoal people commonly place it in direct sunlight believing this releases toxins stored within. In a serendipitous moment “We discovered a side effect of this process was the charcoal creates sound” not unlike the sound ice makes as it expands. To the delight of the audience on installation day the artwork chimed in symphony with the sunlight as the sound of charcoal expanding in the heat rang out.
