MoreArt Public Art Show

Michelle Robinson and Lani Fender and Kynan Robinson’s art collective “andeverythinginbetween” has had 2 pieces selected for the City of Moreland’s ‘MoreArt Public Art Show’. There are 18 works located along the Upfield Train Line between Brunswick and Fawkner. Our pieces are “Affinity” and “Fugitive Piano”.

“Affinity” is a large scale, site specific, placemaking installation consisting of an array of filaments that form an undulating canopy across a 45m x 15m, otherwise empty, landscape. The topographical remapping of the space subverts the viewers understanding and preconceptions by injecting a new reading and experience into a ‘forgotten space’.

It is located in Brunswick and accessed from a pedestrian/bicycle path (parallel to the Upfield railway line), just north of Anstey Train Station. Tinning Street is the closest street crossing – head north from here. Refer to map in the photos section below.

A 350m stroll along the bike path south from here just past Anstey train Station takes you to our other piece, “Fugitive Piano”. An upright piano sits as a foreign object in an outdoor space. A series of performances by high profile pianists is scheduled during the month long exhibition, but for the most part the piano will stand out of context in the space, creating a feeling of intrigue and anticipation. For more info and some pictures of the works check out our works in development page.

The Opening is on the 2nd of October and consists of either a walking or cycling tour that visits all the pieces – places are limited so please book via the emails below . There are also additional tours (refer below dates and times) and a Public Choice Award (best work voted by the community) that requires you to participate in a tour to vote – so we’ll need you undertake a tour and vote for us!!!!!!!!!!!!
