Whilst strolling Elizabeth Quay you can expect to smell the aroma of nearby restaurants, listen to the hustle and bustle of people enjoying an evening stroll and you can enjoy the artwork of the Deadly Dozen.
Elizabeth Quay is where the Derbal Yerrigan (Swan River) meets Perth City, and is home to the temporary artworks housed within double-sided light-box blade walls. Publik worked with twelve local Whadjuk artists (The Deadly Dozen) to portray their stories of the Swan River through their individual artworks. Each artwork was displayed for twelve months, sharing the artist’s stories with the many visitors to Elizabeth Quay.
“Publik provided excellent support to the Emerging Whadjuk Noongar Artists on the MRA Blade Wall Project, Elizabeth Quay. The team worked with all twelve artists from the development workshop phase through to the production phase, ensuring that artists’ final images were as close to their original artwork as possible. The artists reported that their experience was extremely positive, and that they could not have produced such a professional outcome without the well-organised and reassuring guidance of the Publik team”.
