'The Past is Present' at Toorak/South Yarra Library

Made possible by the City of Stonnington's Arts and Cultural Grants program, this amazing installation by Melbourne based photography artist James Voller uses images from factories in Melbourne’s east in the 1950s to reflect on our city’s industrial past as we build and prepare for the future. The installation wraps the archival photograph on to the front of Toorak/South Yarra Library and is printed on to perforated vinyl so looks completely clear from the inside to the outside. The striking image transforms the building and creates an almost three dimensional image which is sure to stir conversation about public art and its place in our community. The installation will be in place until Easter weekend.
