Canberra’s most majestic ambassador, the Skywhale, is heading down to Hobart for the weekend to appear in the Dark Mofo festival.
The Dark Mofo festival apparently celebrates “the dark through large-scale public art, food, music, light and noise” and I am wondering why I’ve never heard of it before because it sounds brilliant.
Centenary of Canberra Creative Director Robyn Archer says she is looking forward to Tasmanians getting the chance to see The Skywhale in person.
“I’m delighted that The Skywhale will be seen for the first time outside Canberra in Hobart, and in connection with the new Dark Mofo festival,” Robyn said.
“While this splendid new flying sculpture is something that everyone can enjoy, I know the artist is proud to have this association with the art and energy that events at the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) embrace.”
The last time Patricia Piccinini’s work was last displayed in Tasmania it broke all attendance records.
Patricia says she is very proud to showcase her latest work in Hobart.
Cheers to Rioter Deref for the great picture again.
