Light / Play

25 August - 10 September 2017

QV Melbourne's Laneway Series launches with Light / Play and the first Australian work from Danish artist Tine Bech.

QV has commissioned globally acclaimed Danish artist Tine Bech to complete her first Australian work, which will be the centrepiece of a new interactive program of events called Light / Play. The celebration of light and play will herald the end of winter from Friday 25 August – Sunday 10 September.

Tine’s new work, entitled Colour Me Beautiful, will create a playful new environment for social interaction, experienced for the very first time at QV Melbourne. Tine Bech will visit Melbourne to premiere the new artwork, and will engage with Melbourne audiences as they interact and respond to her work. 

Colour Me Beautiful

Featuring five colourful runways leading to a vivid landscape of images, Colour Me Beautiful invites the public to play and perform. The interactive installation will capture images of audience members on each runway; live posting them onto a 5.8 metre by 3.2 metre multicolour screen. The work invites Melburnians and visitors alike to walk the coloured grass runway, strike a pose and be captured in a bright maze of colour. Tine’s intention for Colour Me Beautiful is to exemplify and extend the play inherent in human connection through social sharing.  

Colour Me Beautiful is available for participation 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, with other activities and event times varying.
