Gillie and Marc

Come visit Cavill Lane Surfers Paradise and snap a pic with Gillie and Marc latest sculpture!

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 will be on display in Cavill Lane Surfers Paradise for the public to enjoy.

Conversations with the Forest – Cavill Lane Artist in Residence

Open studio from July 7 to October 2021

Free to the public to check out and learn about the project in shop 804

Open Between 12pm – 5pm, Wednesdays to Fridays

Seeking further engagement? Become a Forest Agent on Thursday afternoon meet ups from 3pm – 5pm.

Cavill Lane is proud to present Artist Merinda Davies Conversations with the Forest Project – A living, breathing and growing artwork.

Watch the forest beginning to grow, leave a voice message for the future forest and have a conversation with the artist about the project and how you can get involved.

Conversations with the Forest invites us to help grow a micro-forest in Surfers Paradise on Kombumerri land. This is an artwork made for our future descendants. Using plant species native to the region, the forest will become a ‘paradise’ people can enjoy. A soundscape created for the forest will filter through speakers –  tones and sounds similar to the electric pulse language of the trees.

The work asks us to think about how we regard and communicate with forests and trees, and to consider a future where plants are our equals.

Merinda will be beginning the creation of the work as an artist in residence in Cavill Lane Surfers Paradise, drop in for a conversation about the history and future of Surfers Paradise and what it means to you.

This is a new work in development at the moment supported by Cavill Lane Surfers Paradise, City of Gold Coast GENERATE GC, Situate Art in Festivals (Tasdance), Regional Art Development Fund and Creative Partnerships Australia.
