HORSES FOR COURSES
Horses for courses is an installation of miniature 'horse and jockey' rings portraying the finish of the 2010 Melbourne Cup. The traditional The Emirates Melbourne Cup is an 18 carat gold trophy, and one of the most identifiable sporting trophies anywhere in the world.
It is a national icon embedded in Australia's cultural fabric. Horses for courses is a celebration of sorts: hand-crafted like the cup itself, not for the winner of the race or in celebration of the sport itself, but with reflections on the traditions of craft and the context of the gallery space in mind.
