You Can’t See Rainbows Looking Down utilises sculpture, photography and installation in response to the public artwork Rainbow by Marcus Canning. Rainbow is a recognisable symbol of Fremantle that was commissioned by the port side city in 2016 to put a smile on the face of visitors and foster conversations and debate. Through humour and intervention, Harrison explores his relationship with the sculpture by examining implications surrounding the artwork involving acceptance, appropriation, visibility and consumer culture. This exhibition was developed during a residency at the Fremantle Arts Centre.
The Visual Arts Residency Program is an initiative of and hosted by Fremantle Arts Centre which is part of the City of Fremantle and is supported by the Western Australian Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries.
