Memory Lane | Kate Shaw

25 May, 2010

PROJECT Spencer Lane
CLIENT Brisbane City Council
LOCATION Brisbane, QLD, Australia
ARTIST Kate Shaw
ARTWORK TITLE Memory Lane
CURATORIAL Urban Art Projects
DESIGN Stacie Gibson, UAP Studio
YEAR 2010

Spencer Lane is one of the first laneways selected for reactivation through the Brisbane City Council’s Inhabit/Small Spaces program, designed to transform overlooked and forgotten spaces in the CBD through creative artworks and installations.

Urban Art Projects mentored emerging Melbourne artist Kate Shaw to translate her painting practice into a large scale outdoor wall artwork for Spencer Lane, which is also earmarked for private development with a Laneway Bar.

Based on the artist’s childhood memories from growing up in Brisbane, the 2-dimensional artwork features forms from the surrounding landscape, including the Moreton Bay fig and the Glasshouse Mountains.

Realised partly in mirror vinyl, the artwork makes a contemporary reference to the metalworkers of the laneway’s past. By night the artwork creates an intriguing invitation to the laneway and Laneway Bar.
