Briggs’ Lanterns – Installation

December 17, 2009

Many thanks to the team at UAP headed by Gordon Conn, my Project Manager, for both a streamlined and successful install last night.

I am grateful to be surrounded by so much expertise. Even though we had contingencies that allowed us up to three days for the install, it only took two hours!

With permits acquired, the laneway blocked off and scissor lift in place we went about mounting the work. To guide them with installation, Tony and Bradley used a detailed design document with exact placement and measurements of the artwork and site (thanks to my Lead Designer, Amanda Harris).

My photographer, Troy Hansen, was also on site documenting the installation in progress and I look forward to posting some images very soon.

Briggs’ Lanterns, the resulting temporary public artwork from the 2009 UAP Mentorship Residency, facilitated by Artisan and supported by Brisbane City Council through their Vibrant Laneways and Small Spaces ‘Inhabit’ Program, will be in place for up to two months. If you’re in Brisbane over the Christmas period, please come and have a look. I will be on site Thursday 17 December 6-7pm and Friday 18 December 6-7pm so come along and let me know your thoughts.

Briggs Lane is located off Tank Street between North Quay and George Street and easily accessed by the Kurilpa Bridge from GoMA. Why not make it part of your visit to the Asia Pacific Triennial, with a walk over the beautiful Brisbane River to the shady laneway and back in time.
