29 June - 14 July 2007Roderick Hietbrink
is a Rotterdam-based artist working with sound and video installation. His work is grounded in the study of urban architecture, resulting in experiential, transformative environments developed in response to specific urban landscapes. Vivarium
was produced in the period of Hietbrink's three-month Artspace Studio Residency and featured landscapes near and around Sydney. As in previous works, Vivarium
continued Heitbrink's exploration of issues around nature and the built environment, providing a subtle commentary on the processes of negotiation and navigation that underlie the human condition.
