Kent Morris will feature in Open House Melbourne 2022 in the curated exhibition Take Hold of the Clouds, featuring works of national and international artists across seven of the city’s most significant buildings and urban spaces.
Kent has selected the St Kilda Foreshore Vaults as the site of a major new public artwork in his ongoing Unvanished series. Unvanished – Bunurong (St Kilda) Rainbow Lorikeet #2 (2022) is a four-panel photographic installation of local rainbow lorikeets transforming from black-and-white to full colour.
Created in partnership with Monash University, Take Hold of the Clouds navigates the Weekend’s theme of Built/Unbuilt through a series of thoughtful encounters in which artists reveal the invisible stories and issues in corners of the city.
Take Hold of the Clouds is part of Open House Melbourne – Saturday 30 July and Sunday 31 July.
