South Eveleigh has been graced with a brand new, expansive public artwork by renowned Australian artist and architect, Chris Fox. Fox is all about doing things on a grand scale – you can get a sense of what this new work will be like from his previous transformation of Wynyard Station's escalators into an artwork titled Interloop – and his latest venture is no different. 

In his newest work, Interchange Pavilion, Fox draws from the area's history of rail travel to create a public installation using a frankly dizzying amount of material – think 250 metres of stainless steel ground rails, 15 tonnes of robotically moulded reinforced concrete and 1400 pieces of hardwood – to create a huge, 350-square-metre piece. The arcs and dips of the piece are intended to reflect the criss-crossing geometry of railroad intersections – where trains change course or continue straight ahead. Situated in Eveleigh's Village Square, the artwork is intended to represent the identity of the area as a meeting point, for people to come together and then diverge in their individual trajectories. 

Interchange Pavilion is part of a wider contemporary public art program at South Eveleigh curated by the newly reopened Carriageworks. It's now open to the public, so check i tout and let us know what you think?
