Melbourne Fringe Festival – Market Mural
|Detail:||Saturday 22 September, 8am-3pm|
A long visual combination of key illustrated portraits pre-prepared on a roll of heavyweight paper, 180cm high. Once hung, visitors will be invited to have their outlines traced in spaces between the illustrations; an outline of their head and shoulders traced on to the mural creating an imprint of the diverse Melbourne community through drawing. The drawings and marks will become entangled, intertwined, but will record and archive a participatory event.
It is intended to encourage a feeling of involvement in visual art, participation which in turn invokes action, empathy, attitude, sentiment, communication.
