Work has started on the yellow banana!
Yellow peril – the shape of things to come.
Materials: Plastic coated tubing and wire, plastic cables and rope, LEDs
Dimensions: 1m x 7w x 4d
An artifact of Queensland culture, Yellow peril takes the big banana and skins it. Made from recycled cabling of the past, transformed into the public art of today.
Bernadette Boscacci and Sharon Kitching (aka Banana Splits) are interdisciplinary artists (a pair of local banana-benders) with an interest in personal and cultural narratives that reflects their shared history in Townsville and Sydney. In 2017 they are collaborating on works for Strand Ephemera and Bread and Circuses, an exhibition at Chrissie Cotter Gallery, Sydney in August).
