Sea of Hands installation is coming to the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney. Designed by award winning artist Frances Belle Parker, a proud Yaegl woman. The Sea of Hands concept has been designed as a fully immersive audio-visual experience and centres around the theme of healing country.
The Royal Botanic Garden Sydney is partnering with ANTaR, the national organisation for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Reconciliation and Rights, to bring this interactive symbol of reconciliation, the Sea of Hands, to the Garden. The artwork is made up of 10,000 ‘hands’ arranged to create five coastal banksias which is a symbol of resilience as they tend to grow back stronger and thicker after a fire.
You can be part of the artwork and help plant a hand from Tuesday 5 April!
The exhibition calls for thousands of people to come and plant hands into the lawn of Rathborne Lodge from 5 to 9 April, 10am to 4pm.
Visit the Sea of Hands exhibition from 10 to 17 April, 7am to 9pm. Free Entry!
