Brisbane will bloom with towering flowers (and smaller community-made blooms) as Japanese-Australian artist Hiromi Tango sets up shop for a six-month residency.

This March, the Museum of Brisbane will welcome Japanese-Australian multidisciplinary artist Hiromi Tango for a six-month residency. Tango will transform the Adelaide Street Pavilion with a stunning sculptural arrangement of multicoloured flowers as part of the Hanabira (Gentle Petal) project, inspired by the many blooms and buds found around Meanjin.

This community work calls for hands-on action from the public, with Tango encouraging visitors and locals to engage by creating flowers and foliage from upcycled textiles and foraged materials. The handmade flowers will echo the changing seasons as they are added to walls.

Fascinated by art, health, and neuroscience, Tango weaves, wraps and stitches using everyday objects to create immersive and interactive environments that are bright, multilayered and undeniably an explosion of colour.

You have until Sunday August 11 to watch the project blossom into an eye-catching garden – and to put your own mark on it.
