Every year City of Sydney commissions a major community-based public art project as part of Art & About. This year, Reef Knot’s ‘I Heart Kings Cross’ project was chosen to engage with the truly diverse and spirited community of Kings Cross as well as local artists.
Over two months Reef Knot will collaborate with a team of artists to run assorted knitting circles in Fitzroy Gardens and other local businesses. Then, in early October 2009, the finished pieces will be installed throughout the Cross in a celebration of colour, tolerance and diversity.
‘I Heart Kings Cross’ will be installed from 10-25 October.
Reef Knot’s practice is firmly entrenched in recycling and re-use and we look forward to finding suitable re-uses for the fabric when the installation period is completed.
Reef Knot is a scalable artist collective. On a project by project basis we collaborate with artists across all art forms. For ‘I Heart Kings Cross’ Reef Knot comprises the following team:
Artists and Knitting Instructors
Producers (for Tendril Productions)
