Tools of Knowledge

Matt Poll

Concrete 2020

The Tools of Knowledge represent the sustainable occupation of the greater Sydney region for more than thirty thousand years. The polished part of a ground edge axe can take days to make, it can also be used for many lifetimes. These sculptures depict Aboriginal knowledges, the use the land itself to remake the world.

Commissioned by HARC for the Westmead Hospital Redevelopment Project

Warami-Westmead acknowledges the Dharug people, the traditional custodians of the land upon which the Westmead Health Precinct stands and recognises their continuous connection to culture, community and Country.
