50 life size fiber glass Mali's, 46 artists exploring themes of conversation, ecology, sustainability and life.
From the 10th of August to 21st of September the 50 Mali's will live throughout the CBD. Get the MAP and the APP and explore the Mali walk!  Mali in the City - Zoos Victoria. They will then spend a month in the grounds of the Zoo, followed by an auction on October 25th.

My Mali is titled Crimson Song, and is created by hand cutting and collaging my collected papers..... Mali's Crimson Song is inspired by the weaving together of the many parts to create one. Just as the colours burst into life from reds to golds, blending and interacting, so to does our world: in our landscapes, our communities and in our selves.

I worked on my Mali with an array of other artists over 4 weeks in the old directors quarters at the Zoo,
it was a great atmosphere and definitely a fun and unusual process, with Mandrills next door, and the resident peacock dropping by....
