Five intricately-crafted miniatures of buildings, one roller door and one dumpster are on display, each constructed complete with ad hoc signage, graffiti and urban grime. Sydney buildings are the Olympia Milk Bar in Stanmore, the Karim building in Wentworth Street and the Ginseng Shop in Haymarket, while a Milk Bar from Joshua's home town Adelaide and a Bodega from Brooklyn, New York round out the set.
The exhibition offers insights into Joshua Smith’s meticulous approach to the creation of the works, including research conducted through Google Maps and photography, and the perfect recreation of each building’s facade in 1:20 scale using a variety of materials.
