hiddensydney Known informally as 'The Big Matchsticks', the Brett Whitely artwork titled 'Almost Once' was installed on the Domain Sculpture Walk over looking the Cahill Expressway. Made of NSW Blackbutt timber in 1968, it was donated to the @artgalleryofnsw in 1991, one year before Whiteley's drug overdoes death. Eight metres tall including its concrete plinth, the work consists of a burnt out and live matchstick. It's believed to represent masculinity and femininity, with connotations about burning out and life and death. In 2002, there was controversy about its condition and the restoration work needed during its second major overhaul. At the time, the gallery said it was likely the sclupture would need to be replaced within 10 years. The piece suffered extensive damage through cockatoo attacks and harsh sunlight. The strongest criticism came from Matthew Dillion, who sculpted the matchsticks in an Alexandria warehouse to Whiteley's specifications. In 1995, Dillion was part of the work's first restoration. Each time minors repairs are needed, maintenance work is complicated by the need for scaffolding to reach the artwork's full length #hiddensydney #city #EastSydney #TheDomain #ArtGalleryOfNSW #TheBigMatchsticks #BrettWhiteley #art #artwork #streetart #sculpture #matchstick #live #burnt #backbutt #gallery #donated #plinth #masculinity #femininity #burning #controversy #restoration #repairs #overhaul #damage #cockatoo #sunlight #conservation #warehouse 21h
