Internationally renowned artists and Australian locals, Gillie and Marc Schattner are bringing their beloved hybrid lovers, Rabbitwoman and Dogman to Surfers Paradise, this time on the back of a giant inflatable flamingo. Dressed in their swimming trunks and ready to hit the waves, this giant sculpture is here to add a smile to everyone’s faces.
The Flamingo Riders is a sculpture created for one simple purpose, to inspire joy and make people laugh. Now, this unique piece of positive public art is coming to Cavill Lane to mix in with the vibrant scene that permeates the hidden laneway. Surrounded by bustling international restaurants to everyday conveniences, among an abundance of street performance, art, and entertainment these two lovers and their flamingo will be joining one of the best-hidden gems of the city.
“We are so excited to see our sculpture in such an artistic and cultural hub of Surfers Paradise. We can’t wait to see how they add to the quirkiness of the laneway and see people finding joy in every nook and cranny,” says Marc.
In classic Gillie and Marc style, this sculpture is a full public sculpture experience. With space on the back of the flamingo behind Dogman, the public are encouraged to jump on board and set sail on an adventure. It’s a way to encourage people to let go of any negativity and let their inner silliness shine out as bright as the stainless steel flamingo.
The Flamingo Riders is on display in Cavill Lane Surfers Paradise for the public to enjoy.
