The Statement Artwork will be an exercise in collaborative exploration - acknowledging the shared history of the space and revealing past stories.
The two public artworks planned for the public realm at One The Esplanade will draw contextually on the history and present usage of the site, and will be sympathetic to, and enhance the architectural and landscape design.
The Statement Artwork may be a series or a stand-alone piece. Instantly recognisable, the artwork will become a key element associated with One The Esplanade.
The artwork will provide a significant view-hold to identify the site from The Esplanade; and will assist with wayfinding. The artwork should embody the idea of energy and celebrate our shared future.
The nature of the artwork is in essence about celebrating a shared future, so Artists are advised to include a Noongar artist or cultural advisor in the Artist Team.
The materials for this significant artwork must be sophisticated, high end, and durable for at least 50 years.
Artwork Concept Proposal - $5,000
