Galvanised Steel & Cellophane Fabric Lanterns
ARTISTS Peter Browne & James Gaston
These beautiful lanterns can be temporarily transferred to any location from hanging in the trees at Frogs Hollow, behind the Alter at the Christ Church Cathedral or in the window of William Forster Chambers. They were built by the Larrakia Nation Artists under the guidence from Techy Masero. Peter Browne offered his 2 dimensional designs, which Techy then supported the artists in the transformation into larger than life 3 dimensional luminous structures. The lanterns are created with galvanised rio, cellophane and covered in fabric and beautiful painted designs by the artists.
The lantern project coincided with the Country Men’s concert the biggest Indigenous art and culture festival in 25 years, held by the Larrakia Nation acknowledging the end of Naidoc Week and celebrating the continuous tradition of Aboriginal people coming together to fight for their rights as the traditional custodians of Australia.
