Lisa Roet’s ‘Golden Monkey’ in Bejing
Lisa Roet’s Golden Monkey has been installed in Bejing on The Opposite House. This large inflatable monkey measures an impressive 45 ft high and is manufactured out of gold thread. The installation is designed to inspire thought about our connections with primates exploring similarities, acceptance and peace.
Roet has collaborated with Inflatable Design and Felipe Reynolds and the project was supported by the City of Melbourne Arts Grants Program, The Australian Embassy, Creative Victoria, Asia Link and Australia-China Council.
