The Forest of Dreams

The Forest of Dreams
Artist(s): HART Anton

Anton Hart’s Public art work ‘The Forest of Dreams’ is a work that explores the contemporary landscape. But who says it has to be read left to right, it just as easily reads Dreams of the Forest. Words have a long history of use in describing public space. The 4 words remain as entry points from the road into the park, creating and maintaining the separation of space which the artist maintains is important in understanding the pre-settlement history of the location. The benches that accompany the work invite people to sit and contemplate their surroundings. The work also acts to unite the 4 quadrants of the Square. The original concept had a second component at the junction of Pulteney and Grenfell and was to be called ‘The City of Dreams’.
