River Detritus is a sculptural series in conversation with water, using cement, river sand and discarded objects from the Coxs River.
River Detritus was first exhibited in June 2016 at Bryden Williams’ solo exhibition Hydro Wilderness, held at Firstdraft, Woolloomooloo. It was redeveloped for the September 2017 group exhibition Inter Mural, curated by Isabel R and Misael M at Interlude Gallery, Glebe. In November 2017 River Detritus was exhibited in Williams’ MFA examination work in the Sydney College of the Arts Graduate Exhibition and again in the May 2018 group exhibition, New Contemporaries, which was curated by Liam Garstang and held at SCA Galleries, Rozelle. River Detritus was funded by the Australian Postgraduate Award.
