New artwork to cast an interesting shadow

New artwork to cast an interesting shadow Image

Docklands’ public art collection has a new addition, with a sculpture by artist Sally Smart installed at Buluk Park last month.

The sculpture, Shadow Trees is made of large, painted steel components measuring over 12-metres high and was commissioned by Lend Lease for the City of Melbourne and Places Victoria.

The sculpture is lit up at night with a lighting design by Ramus Illumination.

Lend Lease project director Claire Johnston said she was thrilled with the sculpture and praised artist Sally Smart for her work.

“Creating the best places means creating places that connect with people, places that people want to visit and spend time at, places that promote people’s wellbeing,” she said.

“By working with Sally to deliver high-quality public art like Shadow Trees, we’re continuing to create a world-class civic precinct that has something for everyone.”

Cr Rohan Leppert agreed, saying: “The installation of Shadow Trees marks the completion of this new civic meeting place for Docklands. The colour and scale of the sculpture invited visitors to look up through the branches or read the poetry at their feet, to enjoy the park and explore the library.”

Installation of the artwork is expected to be complete by October 3.
