Recently completed Tasmanian Government Art Site Scheme commission
Wednesday, 24 October 2018
The Tasmanian Government Art Site Scheme is the state government’s public art program.
Since its launch in 1979, the Scheme has managed over 660 commissions creating more than 1 900 artworks located across the state.
A new commission has recently been completed at the Glenorchy Health Centre.
Antonijo Bacic has installed Elevations, a celebratory work that depicts kunanyi/ Mt Wellington and embraces Glenorchy’s diversity and sense of place within the Tasmanian landscape.
According to the ABS census 2016, Glenorchy is one of the must culturally diverse suburbs in the state.
The artwork, made from a suspended curtain of laser engraved acrylic discs, represents this diversity through the depiction of motifs representing different cultural groups.
