Piano for Artist’s Installation
Piano Moves Karen Osman visited Rone’s latest works at Burnham Beeches. This is an iconic Art Moderne mansion and estate located on Sherbrooke Road, Sherbrooke, 45 minutes from the city of Melbourne. Street artist Rone is known for his large-scale installations, painting huge images of women’s faces on the walls of abandoned buildings.
Rone and his team spent a year painstakingly turning the mansion into an immersive installation. They sourced period furniture, crockery, glassware and manchester, then set about encouraging signs of decay and destruction. Period pieces that had been perfectly preserved were left outside for a year, and they are now water-damaged homes for moss and lichen.
