March 2024 - Over the past three years we've been managing the public art for Megara's The Foundry Leederville development on Newcastle Street. We ran an Invited Concept Competition asking artists to respond to Leederviile Town Centre as a dynamic social hotspot. From three strong concepts Sean van der Poel's 'Milieu' emerged as the successful proposal and has recently been installed. Sean's concept, inspired by a change in the urban grid in this location, includes one large wall mounted and one smaller freestanding sculpture both with integrated lighting. Both artworks dynamically respond to and interact with passing pedestrian and vehicle movement on the footpath and street making a meaningful contribution to the development and surrounding public realm.
