Created in his forge in Hobart, Pete Mattila’s 4-tonne sculpture, Offerings was designed and built as a conceptual entrance or threshold. The space between spaces, the ceremony of passing through, or passing into. With the human body in motion and the mental space of change and transformation, Offerings is that gateway. The marker before entering a place of ritual that acknowledges a forever-changing fluidity of impermanence. Its monolithic form of manipulated steel sections offer portals, bells and voids. Framing transitory moments of time.
