Artist and farmer Roderick Sprigg explores the nature of contemporary masculinity, an interest central to his interdisciplinary practice and informed by his farming life in Mukinbudin, Western Australia.


In this installation of objects, drawings and photographs, Sprigg takes as his starting point the safety guards that farmers customarily remove from their machinery. Sprigg seeks to reveal the internal and external restraints acting upon communication while expressing his respect for the character of rural life.
