The Tape Installation has come to Melbourne’s Federation Square. According to Numen — which consists of Sven Jonke, Christoph Katzler, and Nikola Radelkjovic — the installation was commissioned by Melbourne’s main civic centre and cultural district Federation Square as a part of their Creative Program focussing on experimental large-scale public art and its social and communal relevance.
The installation spans full 16 meters stretch of the Fed Square’s Western Terrace making the greatest span traversed by a Tape Installation thus far. Constructed with the help of special platforms as it projects from the external walls of the Fed Square’s SBS building, it is at the height of 6 meters above ground. It is the first Tape Installation outside of Europe and below the equator.
