See the sunny side with BCC’s latest Outdoor Gallery installation
Comprised of lightboxes, projections and glass vitrines, Brisbane City Council’s Outdoor Gallery brings light, colour and acclaimed art to the laneways and public spaces of the city and surrounds.
The current exhibition, Sunny Side Up, is a collection of vibrant works that explore Brisbane’s subtropical identity, unique physical features and cultural atmosphere – of which Fish Lane plays a proud part!
Now featuring in the lightboxes at the Grey Street entrance to Fish Lane (opposite Julius), local artist Monica Rohan’s Rambling/Uncomfortable (2016) can be seen as a colourful contrast to the heritage wall on which they’re installed.
The work features intense patterning to create a disorienting and intriguing visual effect, with patterns drawn from pedestrian items like clothing, blankets, and foliage to create exaggerated and surreal environments that smother the figures featured.
While the works that form Sunny Side Up will be on display until April 18, a particular highlight of the programming will be Council’s free walking tour of the Outdoor Gallery hosted by Monica herself, on Friday, February 5.
