About Perth Airport
In 2013 FORM was selected to develop an art program for showcase within the gateway to Perth, the Perth International Airport, which is utilised by four million international, and over nine million domestic travellers annually. This project is currently ongoing, encompassing numerous opportunities within the airport site, including Terminals 1 and 2, and the BRAVO and Co-generation buildings. Commissioned artists for the project to date are Penny Coss (WA), Christian Fletcher (WA), Penelope Forlano (WA), Kyle Hughes-Odgers (WA), Tom Muller (WA), Nike Savvas (NSW), Carly Scoufos (Qld), and Nick Statham (WA). Six of these resulting artworks, (by Penny Coss, Penelope Forlano, Tom Muller, Nike Savvas, Carly Scoufos, and Nick Statham), were installed at the airport during 2015. The resulting works have been featured in The Sunday Times, The West Australian, on Channels 7 and 9 news, We Love Perth, and Perth Airport Website. 2016 will see the development of an Aboriginal art program focused on the new airport forecourt.
FORM’s Public Art stream draws on research and strategic thinking in order to help facilitate creativity in our urban environment. Our team of architects, art consultants, curators, writers, and place strategists actively seek out projects that contribute meaningfully to the place where they are installed. Working collaboratively with artists, architects, fabricators, government, and the private sector allows FORM to offer a full service approach to public art commissions. Furthermore, our focus on stakeholder engagement, creative development and strategy, curation, design, fabrication, installation, and ongoing programming, allows us to actively encourage and assist first-time applicants, ensuring that art in Western Australia’s public spaces is as diverse as possible.
