monument for small change 2007
21 x 11 cm
Limited edition of 50
The 2007 Gertrude Edition comprises a new sculptural work by Nick Mangan - a bronze sculpture, cast from an assemblage of banksia pods, beeswax and coins. Inhabiting an uneasy space between growth and decay, totem and tourist kitsch, the work explores the environmental effects of culture on nature and the dubious progress of capitalism.
