“Soft Oyster” M~M@GAD

  • Johnstone Park Johnstone Park Geelong, VIC, 3220 Australia

Artists: Nick Wilson, Daniele Poidonani and Jason Boheme

Soft Oyster, created by the youth of the North of Geelong alongside professional puppet makers, is encased in beautiful patterned circular forms dreamed up by the Norlane Yarn Bombers. These patterns echoe the light and hyperbolic crochet of the M~M2014 Moorpanyal Park walking circle. The oyster pearl glows softly as it completes its sisyphean circuit. It reflects the relentless nature of the sea and the tenacity of organisms like the Corio Bay Oyster that have returned to our waters after years of depletion.
