GayBird Leung is one of Hong Kong’s most exciting artists. Exclusively for Adelaide, Leung has developed a new large-scale artwork that will spread across the Goodman Lawns on North Terrace for audiences to explore.
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.
