Corners and inescapable places

About

In the ‘Grey nomad grinding‘ video series, artist Claret Sobe documents the number of times a rock is moved to prop open a toilet door.

It depicts the inadvertent efforts of retired campers (affectionately named Grey Nomads) at grinding away the concrete slab of an outdoor toilet to expose the hidden quartz aggregate.

Sobe’s work is a poignant metaphor for the invisibility of wisdom and worth in an ageing population.
