Drums Between the Bells is a participatory installation by New Zealand Tiffany Singh. The installation of ribbons & bells on the Elm Tree in City Square became available for audience participation on Saturday 19 May. We now encourage those who joined Tiffany at the Elm tree on Saturday evening to share in the next evolution of the artwork. The exchange between Tiffany and those who were there was to take the string of bells from the tree on a journey to their own sacred place – then share with Tiffany and others where that place is and what it means to you. This artwork is about participation, connection and sharing, with the intention of creating an awareness of what ‘sacred’ means to different people. So show us, Melbourne: where are those bells now? Where are those spaces of this city… and possibly beyond? The next part of this art work is in the hands and hearts of those who are now engaging with these objects and ideas. Please send documentation of your bell to firstname.lastname@example.org and follow the journey of the bells here.
Due to unforeseen circumstances this installation is no longer displayed at City Square.
