Pinkstone Playground Weavings

Jul 12th, 2012No Comments

Tendril Productions produced and production managed the creation and installation of two giant weavings in Pinkstone Playground (Erskineville NSW) for Reef Knot. Commissioned by City of Sydney, these permanent artworks are presented as an alternative to standard playground equipment. Taking the form of a nest and a coccoon, the weavings took nine months to complete in situ with the assistance of over a dozen weavers. The artworks are created from brushwood, alang alang and hemp twine over a mild steel armature.

Director of production: Alasdair Nicol

Creative director: Michelle McCosker

Production & site assistance: Sonia Tsai & Chris Hancock

Weavers: Lucia Scurrah, Renata Field, Anthea Fitzgerald, Shrin Kunze, Olivia Lovell, Lucy Hall, Jesse Cox, Eloise Rapp, Kirsten McCosker, Hollie Liu, Belinda Sheekey, Ruby Langton-Batty, Prodita Sabarini and Laura Pike

‘I ♥ Kings Cross’ by Reef Knot was a community-focused art project commissioned by City of Sydney as part of Art & About 2009 and installed across multiple locations in Sydney’s Kings Cross. The project entailed the co-ordination of approximately 25 knitting workshops, co-ordination of six local business partners and a grass-roots publicity campaign. The resulting artwork displayed the creative contributions of over 200 participants from children through to senior citizens, naval officers to architects. ‘I ♥ Kings Cross’ was the recipient of the 2009 Sydney Music Arts & Culture award for ‘Remixing the City’.
