3pm - 9pm
Alice Wylie Reserve
On Saturday May 1st see Alice Wylie Reserve be transformed into an Enchanted Garden. Hear the mystical sound of the handpan as you wander through a field of flowers filled with vibrantly coloured, unique blooms. Grab a bite to eat from the food trucks, relax on the beanbags and as the sun sets, watch the flowers come to life and light up the night.
Brought to you by Comet Project Space, Inflorescence is a collaborative light-based installation showcasing the potential of plastic as a material for making art. Over 1,000 plastic bottles have been meticulously spliced together by a collective of artists, creating an otherworldly environment that is industrial yet natural. Each of the plastic elements are infused with the history of a previous use and place, encouraging reflection on the abundance of these castaway materials and how they impact our natural environment.
A free, zero-waste event, suitable for all ages. Wheelchair friendly. Fun for the whole family.
Generously supported by Albert Eden Local Board, Auckland Council and EcoMatters.
