A Sixth in Five Movements takes inspiration from how the sensations of Bordeaux red wine can be linked to Beethoven's Symphony No.6, an unusual pastoral symphony that has five movements, rather than the usual four.

For this work, the artist has re-purposed this symphony, using each of the five themes to correspond with her sense of the flavours of the Brick Bay Bordeaux blends, and to the site of the artwork, on the Brick Bay Sculpture Trail.

It is an emotive, sonic construction that evokes the richness and play of flavours on the palate, with a narrative that is both felt and heard through the sculpture.
