Art to be sold back to artist

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

THE Town of Vic­to­ria Park will sell public art­work Kata Dji­nanginy, also known as Hil­lview Look­ing, back to its artist Lance Chadd.

The work on the cor­ner of Ber­wick Street and Hil­lview Ter­race con­sists of two pole struc­tures de­pict­ing Nyungar im­agery and names of na­tive flora and fauna orig­i­nally found in the sur­round­ing bush­land.

It was in­stalled in 2011, but the Town said it had come to the end of its ma­te­rial life.

Af­ter an in­de­pen­dent art cu­ra­tor per­formed an anal­y­sis, a de­ci­sion was made in con­sul­ta­tion with Chadd to de­com­mis­sion the art­work and to fol­low best prac­tice by of­fer­ing to sell the art­work back to the artist, which he has agreed to.

“The art­work has be­come a fa­mil­iar part of the Hil­lview Com­mu­nity Bush­land and will be missed by the com­mu­nity,” Town chief ex­ec­u­tive An­thony Vuleta said.

“It has come to the end of its life.”
