Recycled Plastic Bag Installations

In contextualizing Dahlsen’s work, Dr Jacqueline Millner from the University of Western Sydney states:
When Australian artist John Dahlsen began his littoral walks over a decade ago, he was in some respects honouring the tradition of exploring the relation between humankind and the environment through daily, ritual, embodied interaction. In the case of Dahlsen’s practice, however, the ecological dimension was... more...

Found object installation art: plastics, styrofoam, nylon rope, thongs and driftwood, found objects from Australian beaches:

Reviewed by John T Spike at the 2003 Florence Biennial:
“With this art work, I wish I had a chair and could look at it for a long time, because I am certain that in his selection of what elements to put on the different levels there is a meaning, because I never saw work like this before…So this is the kind of work that is very meditative, I would love to sit in front of it for a long time. Sometimes with work that is meditative you have the feeling that the painting or sculpture would change at different times of the day, but I don’t have that feeling about this work… Because curiously this work seems to have its own internal light. The artist himself has put light into these abstract landscapes… The feeling I have looking at this artists work, I have a feeling of archaeology I see all the layers of the world, all the different people…” (Transcript of extemporaneous remarks made in public by John T Spike, reviewing John Dahlsen’s artwork at the 2003 Florence Biennial).
John T Spike is an internationally recognized art critic and author and director of the 2003 Florence Biennial of Contemporary Art.
