Forms & Other Things is a site-specific and performative artwork developed over the duration of Headland Sculpture on the Gulf. Comprising a historic art material, this clay is sourced from around Waiheke Island. The work evolves over the event, the processes of its making being partly dependent on the artist’s physical ability to manipulate the clay by hand. Like many of Maloy’s past projects, time and duration are integral to the situation. Viewers are given an insight into the work as it develops and the creative process normally kept within the confines of the artist’s studio. Forms & Other Things is in a perpetual state of flux across the event, from the beginning to the end of its life as an art work.
