Witnessing to Silence
Fiona Foley created Witnessing to Silence for the celebrated Brisbane Magistrates Court, completed in 2005. Foley’s work is a contemporary monument to her people and a unique recording of past history.
Witnessing to Silence incorporates several different elements and techniques that showcase UAP STUDIO’s capacity to realise multifaceted projects. The work incorporates three elements: cast bronze lotus lilies that emerge from an ethereal mist, stainless steel columns embedded with ash in laminated glass panels, and etched place names in granite pavers.
