Somewhere over the rainbow
In Rainbows - Nike Savvas
When arriving into Perth, passengers pass under internationally renowned Sydney artist Nike Savvas’ In Rainbows installation, a fringe of more than 500 multi-coloured, aluminium suspended rods floating above the escalators in the Terminal 1 Arrivals area. Just stand beneath it and wonder at the rainbows above.
“In this work the rainbow signifies hope, renewal, marks a sense of place, and is relevant to the ‘now’ – of the moment. It adds a dynamic experience to the precinct as the viewer moves towards, around and under the work. In this they encounter multiple rainbows with different facets of discovery and experience.” – Nike Savvas
