Collaborating with Mitch Mahoney our expert team has just delivered the public artworks at Pallas House Melbourne, 67-69 Palmerston Crescent South Melbourne.
Mitch Mahoney is an emerging Boonwurrung artist specialising in the revitalisation of South-Eastern Aboriginal practices. His work focuses on cultural items such as possum skin cloaks, kangaroo tooth necklaces, line work drawings and South-Eastern Aboriginal design.
Our studio was involved from strategy and curation, right through to implementation. We worked with the client, artist, engineers, fabricators and installation crews to ensure the canopies were elegant, refined and fit for purpose to display the beautiful artworks. Each artwork has a specific meaning outlined in the artist plaque displayed onsite. The public artwork is spread across the three cantilevered canopies to the front façade.
‘All of my practice is about the revitalisation and celebration of South-Eastern Aboriginal culture. I try to create works that are designed to spark interest and educate people. Where I can, I like to create works that are collaborative and bring the public into an art space to learn and be involved in the art making process.’ – Mitch Mahoney
