Public art spaces have been around for a while. A good example of this,
is one I visit every month called “The platform gallery” in Degraves Street
Subway under Flinders Street Station. Every month various artists use windows built with in the space to exhibit art work ranging from 2D and 3D art, installations as well as audio and film.
A recent visit to the space showed the works of Catherine Ranger and Danny Frommer. The installations varied from a 3D model of Stonehenge made out of soap bars, newspaper collages with an eerie audio recording and hand drawn comics.
Another unusual piece titled ‘Sub-assembly’ involves various pieces of wood mechanically attached to motors, moving in a repeated motion.
I recommend if you’re ever in the city to check out the space. There’s always something interesting going on in the window spaces.
This exhibition is on display from 7 Oct to 29 Oct.
