Skywhales – Every Heart Sings
April 3 @ 5:30 am - 6:00 am
Skywhales – Every Heart Sings: Patricia Piccinini’s Skywhalepapa, a new companion piece to Skywhale, will launch near the NGA on Saturday 3 April 5.30am, weather permitting.
Patricia Piccinini’s Skywhalepapa is a monumental sculpture in the form of a hot-air balloon. A new companion piece to Skywhale, together they form a skywhale family.
Centred around the two balloons, the Skywhales: Every heart sings project spans music and song to knitting and baking. The story of the skywhale family is told in Patricia Piccinini’s new children’s book Every Heart Sings. Musician Jess Green (AKA Pheno) has created a song, We are the Skywhales, keen knitters can make their own skywhales from a pattern developed by a local Canberra knitter, and Three Mills Bakery have produced a limited edition skywhales croissant for the three Canberra flight events.
