Since 2015 there have been a few Wonderwall Festivals held in Port Adelaide. I have seen them for many years as I enter the Port region and considered them purely as artwork.
Currently, they provide an interesting perspective as they look out over new building works.
On one side of the old fisheries building, empty for over 30 years, this piece by Polish artist Etam Cru, seems to hide from the construction of new apartments when the old building could be refurbished. And on the opposite face of the same building…
By Askew One and Elliot Francis Stewart (NZ) this figure is set against some Kaurna words – the First Nations people of this region. More digging up of traditional lands in the foreground.
And finally, a piece by Chilean artist INTI, that is so pretty on it’s own.
But sailing into view between the two rows of new buildings, it has a different tone.
They’re for Becky’s squares.
