VANDAL - a Sydney-based creative studio that specialises in post production, film, audio and virtual & augmented reality - were loaning use of their cinema room to the PLACE ACADEMY team. The team was anticipating 30 industry experts from placemaking, retail and public sphere to come into this space for their inaugural session. They wanted art put into the space that would emphasise the values of creative placemaking and art.

The Art Pharmacy Consulting team assessed the space and decided that what it needed was a structural piece hanging from the ceiling. They sourced faux botanicals and flowers, which had been custom painted by a good friend and local artist.

The temporary structure was installed over 12 hours. the botanicals were hung from the rafters, and balanced with the use of fishing wire.

For this job, Art Pharmacy Consulting created a strategy for the space to match needs of the client, sourced materials, curated the space, and undertook install and de-install.
