Pub­lic Art Strategy

Stand­ing 13 metres high, the paint­ed steel sculp­ture depicts a giant black bird omi­nous­ly con­tem­plat­ing a worm. Draw­ing on aspects of the most famous out­door sculp­tures, the piece describes Mel­bourne through its pub­lic art. Bruce Armstrong’s Eagle, DCM’s Mel­bourne Gate­way, Inge King’s For­ward Surge, Clement Meadmore’s Dervish, Peter Cortlett’s Tarax Play Sculp­ture and Ron Robert­son Swann’s Vault are all ref­er­enced in Pub­lic Art Strat­e­gy.
