South Bank Pinkstallation
Stanley Street Plaza is a great South Bank meeting place. Cobbled streets, casual dining, live music and eclectic markets.
But you know that top-hatted guy balancing on a unicycle hanging high over the centre of the Plaza? He’s one of the last remaining of the 88 ‘Human Factor Sculptures’ created by John Underwood for World Expo ’88 – all of them white, made of coated fibreglass and showing people doing ordinary things.
We thought we’d give our friend some colour and company.
For Brisbane Festival, he’ll ride on a pink cloud of top hats. A pinkstallation!
But our lone peddler deserves a special friend. So glance up to the roundabout on Grey Street and you’ll see standing proud – in a surprise appearance – one of the last remaining four-metre-high pink bunnies, created especially for Brisbane Festival by street artist Stormie Mills in 2013, 25 years after Expo. The Stormie Mills Project entertained Brisbane during festival time for two years.
Big Pink will look towards Aerial Cyclist, affectionately, sending big pink winks.
Think there’ll be a love match?
