Artist: Zabelski Han Pty Ltd
In 2002 the City of Greater Dandenong commissioned Zabelski Han Pty Ltd to undertake a public art project in Tirhatuan Park, Dandenong North. Zabelski Han are an accomplished design and fabrication company who have completed a number of diverse and innovative art works across metropolitan Melbourne and Victoria. Big Fish Ptd Ltd employed the expertise of Mal Padgett to develop and edit the movie component of this project.
They talked about doing things at the park: being there with their family, fishing in the creek, playing ball, feeding ducks, running around, riding bikes, and flying kites.
It was inspired by conversations between the artists and local residents and primary school students, to capture the unique qualities of the park’s history, culture, and activities.
The work represents activities shared in Tirhatuan Park including family, fishing in the creek, playing ball, riding bikes and flying kites.
