In early August I was lucky enough to be part of a mystery tour of Cockatoo Island with a celebrity guide thanks to Gaston Nyugen from the Art Gallery of NSW. Too many instalations left me speachless but I’ll try to impart some hint of the facination I felt when confronted by the luminescent, biomechanical sculpture by Philip Beesley. Hypnotic, chilling, fearfully absorbing, memories of a hospital refracted and clinical. The perfect finish to a highly stimulating experience. And our mystery tour guide? Celebrity chef Adam Lau. A thousand thank yous, Gaston!
