Artist in Residence: Hiromi Tango

Japanese-Australian multidisciplinary artist Hiromi Tango will start a six-month residency from 2 March 2024 where the contemporary creative will transform Museum of Brisbane’s Adelaide Street Pavilion into a sculptural arrangement of vibrant flowers through the 花弁 Hanabira (Gentle Petal) public installation.

As the community-led project begins to blossom, Hiromi invites residents and visitors to create decorative flowers and foliage fashioned from upcycled textiles and foraged local materials inspired by the abundant blooms and buds found across Meanjin/Brisbane.

Museum-goers can participate in facilitated hands-on workshops or simply wander in and engage in self-guided art activities to contribute to the budding public project.

Hanabira (Gentle Petal) will reflect the changing seasons as handmade flowers are added to the walls, creating a floral sanctuary and a meditative space for expression, transformation and healing.

Examining the intersection of art, health and neuroscience is at the root of Hiromi’s decades-long practice, which manifests as colourful, tactile and multilayered sculptural displays.

Her process is cumulative; she weaves, wraps and stitches over everyday objects and materials before joining them together to construct immersive environments.

Through her art, Hiromi has developed an immediately recognisable style that has seen her works displayed in major Australian museums as well as international exhibitions in the US, Belgium, Dubai and throughout the Asia-Pacific region.

As Artist-in-Residence, Hiromi will be in attendance at MoB, allowing visitors to witness her expression in action, draw inspiration as the healing garden takes shape and help the artist add to the blooming display. Participate in a petal-powered display as this captivating Artist in Residence creates a community garden of inspiring blooms and buds within the inspiring environs of the Museum of Brisbane.
