'Home' sound installation

Date/Time: Tuesday, 3 October 2017 - Sunday, 15 October 2017, all day

Location: Goodman Lawns, North Terrace Campus

Cost: FREE

More information: Visit website

The Confucius Institute and Adelaide Festival Centre present the 'Home' sound installation by one of Hong Kong's most exciting artists, GayBird Leung. Exclusively for Adelaide, Leung has developed a large-scale artwork that will spread across the Goodman Lawns for audiences to explore from Tuesday, 3 October to Sunday, 15 October 2017.

This art installation consists of sculptures representing a literal interpretation of the Chinese character for home (家) - a pig under a roof. As you move through the installation during the day, the sculptures are complimented by playful sounds. At night, the sculptures emit a brilliant white light. This creates a stunning landscape on an iconic Adelaide location, evoking Chinese traditional and contemporary ideas of home and family.

This special outdoor art installation has been commissioned by the Confucius Institute at The University of Adelaide with assistance from the Art Gallery of South Australia and Adelaide Festival Centre to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of the Confucius Institute in Adelaide.

This event is part of the OzAsia Festival.
