Nick Selenitsch

6 – 30 April 2014


For April 2014 Nick Selenitsch has installed Folly, a sculptural construction celebrating a lifetime of playing basketball, in competitions and on public outdoor courts like the one in Edinburgh Gardens. Selenitsch grew up in nearby Clifton Hill and has regularly played the game at any accessible court in the area over the past 25 years.


In what is Plinth Projects' final exhibition, the artwork constitutes a monument to amateur sporting activity and a representation of the artist's ongoing interest in the foundational role of play.


Nick Selenitsch is represented in Australia by Sutton Gallery, Melbourne.
