ART IN PLACE
ART IN PLACE is the City of Melville’s new series of temporary public artworks that aim to engage the community by giving residents and visitors unique opportunities to experience and encounter contemporary art in significant and accessible locations across the City.
Planning for the City of Melville’s 2019 ART IN PLACE installation, Sonic Hill, is underway, with installation aiming to connect people to the past and present through the clever use of sound. Sonic Hill is a site-specific audio-sculpture collaboration by artists Tom Muller and Ned Buckeley. Further details will be released in late 2018, while the event is anticipated to take place in April 2019.
The inaugural 2018 commission for ART IN PLACE asked artists to respond to the theme of ‘spotlight’, with artworks that encourage audiences to look above the ground, toward the horizon and up, to where the water, earth and built environment meet the skyline.
Perth-based artists VJzoo (Kat Black and Jasper Cook) collaborated with Kambarni (Kamsani Bin Salleh) to deliver Confluence, a projection-based installation across the body of water and illuminated on a fleet of boats, where the Swan (Derbarl Yerrigan) and Canning (Djarlgarro Beeliar) rivers met.
