Atong Atem’s Outdoor Living
at Hanover House
The city’s Hanover House, part of the future site for STH BNK By Beulah, has been brought to life by Melbourne’s rising star artist Atong Atem, who has been commissioned to animate two facades of the building.
Atem’s new artwork Outdoor Living (2021) draws inspiration from her archive of vintage European wallpapers and collected native flowers.
Situated in the heart of a dynamic international arts precinct, STH BNK By Beulah will aim to showcase how future expressions of art and culture can enhance and enrich daily life. Atong Atem’s dramatic statement in paint and LED neons is the first creative commission for this future development. Remixing past and present symbols to shape a new vision for Melbourne, the installation will house the temporary BETA By STH BNK program, an experimental event series.
