The Snow Circus is creating excitement at the ‘Creek’ and is the latest artistic venture between the well known visual artist Catherine Larkin’s and neon lighting expert Dean Phillips from Delta Neon . The events will be staged at Possum Flat, Wire Plains, Mt. Hotham on September 2nd 2006.
Snow Circus will be an artist-driven, community-created temporal art work, combining the elements of fireworks, neon lighting, composed music and sound effects, neon sculptures and costume.
This is not the first time that Catherine Larkin’s and Dean Phillips have combined their talents to create a spectacular event at Snow Circus. It follows on from the opening of the Regional Arts Australia’s 2004 conference with the practicing artists and Horsham Community – Fire Dog Smoke Lizard. Neon goannas were designed by Catherine Larkin and fabricated by Dean Phillips at Delta Neon for this site specific show.
Watch out for their next artistic partnership called ‘Common Ground’ at Lakes Entrance over the Australia day weekend in 2007.
