Matter Matters by Danie Mellor was unveiled in August 2019 as the fourth Museum of Contemporary Art Sydney’s Loti Smorgon Sculpture Terrace Commission.

The Museum works with artists to realise new, temporary artworks that respond to the unique site overlooking Sydney Harbour. Mellor said, “The drama of natural forms is something I find captivating, and the shapes of the bronze mangrove stilt roots is a reminder of the beauty of natural architecture…It’s important to be aware just how deeply we are connected to natural spaces: mangrove colonies are essential for ecological balance and health along our coastlines.”
