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 second ART IN PLACE installation, Sonic Lines, is underway, with the event to connect people to the past and present through the clever use of sound. Sonic Lines will invite audiences to hear a renewed sense of place through a sonic map which will narrate the unique historical and cultural stories of Wireless Hill, a site that has been used for communication for thousands of years. More details will be released as they come to hand.
The first 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.
