The Eight, Stephen King. Inspired by the time his three daughters were rowing. It describes the moment when the boat is held aloft just before the strok-side and bow-side rowers part to shoulder the boat.
I interpreted this one quite differently before I read the catalogue. To me they were women bearing the weight of the world on their shoulders.

Tribute to a Workhorse, Belinda Villani. My father's love of horses stemmed from his migrant inner city childhood contact with the local workhorses rather than the romantic idea of the outback horse and rider. Woven rattan, steel.

Another piece with controversy attached. 27 year old Iranian, Mona Aghababee, won the prize for young sculptors with her piece, Where is the Freedom, but has been refused a visa to travel from Tehran to Australia to receive the prize. "The thing that is important for me is they couldn't reject my opinion ... I couldn't come to another country myself, but my idea and my thought can go."
Where is the Freedom, Mona Aghababaee - Inspired by Ancient Persian culture, the symbols are used in a new context and are connected with the social, politcal and cultural conditons in Iran. Mild iron wire.
