By now, Melburnian’s should be well acquainted with Rone’s work, last year’s exhibition ‘Empty’ was hugely successful, and if you didn’t get along to see it you may have seen his work feature recently on an episode during Masterchef’s ‘Heston Week’ as part of the Silo Art Trail in north-western Victoria.
Having recently finished off one of these amazing grain silos in Lascelles, Rone has turned his attention back to his hometown of Melbourne and has transformed the last house standing on the former Amcor factory site in Fairfield.
This early 1900s weatherboard home has seen Rone produce a series of his signature ‘Jane Doe’ portraits on its walls juxtaposed with the interiors which are designed by Carly Spooner which recreate the archetypal mid-century Australian interior with chenille bedspreads, wood-grained TV set and much.
Rone’s last show attracted more than 14,000 people over ten days, so you’re going to want to get in quick for this one.
Check out the video below to get a good feel for the exhibit.
When: Saturday 22 July – Sunday 30 July, 12pm – 5pm
