Emi­ly Floyd
JACK­A­LOPE

Emi­ly Floyd was com­mis­sioned by Jack­a­lope Hotel on Victoria’s Morn­ing­ton Penin­su­la to cre­ate a mon­u­men­tal sculp­ture of the hotel’s name­sake. The myth­i­cal Jack­a­lope – an abstract­ed jackrab­bit with ante­lope horns – stands over six metres tall in the hotel’s fore­court. The art­work sets the tone for the hotel, merg­ing hos­pi­tal­i­ty with art, the­atre and mythol­o­gy. This art­work is a con­tin­u­a­tion of Floyd’s pub­lic art prac­tice that explores large-scale, geo­met­ric and abstract forms that are often rem­i­nis­cent of child­hood toys.
