Suspended from a crane 30 metres in the sky, renowned Adelaide visual artist Thom Buchanan will transfer the views of the soon-to-be constructed apartment complex, Palladium on Light, to canvas in a live overhead performance over three hours.
The high-rise work of art will be created this Thursday and will take pride of place in the foyer of the Light Square apartment complex upon its completion.
Construction is expected to commence on the $40 million development in May this year. To date, 50 per cent of the apartments have been sold off the plan, including a record-breaking penthouse apartment sale, which fetched $5.18 million in late 2013.
Diadem Corporation managing director Nick Dean says the aspect of the 18-storey apartment complex will be truly spectacular from the hills across the city to the sea, so having it captured in art form and showcased within the building for all to enjoy is appealing.
“Sales have been buoyed by the resurgence of the city’s west, with SAHMRI, Royal Adelaide Hospital and Adelaide Convention Centre to add further vibrancy to the area, as we see the vision for the Riverbank precinct also become a reality,” Nick said.
“We’ve been pleased with the level of interest in the apartments to date, with people appreciating the superior quality of the development and interiors along with the lifestyle benefits that city living delivers.”
Buchanan’s highly acclaimed work is receiving national and international attention, with a 400 square metre wall installation featuring a 2D street scene the centrepiece of the RISE street festival in Christchurch’s Canterbury Museum, which attracted 50,000 visitors within the first month.
Created by Intro Design, Palladium on Light features luxurious and spacious 1, 2 and 4 bedroom apartments over 18-floors. Featuring the State’s first fully automated car stacking system, 24-hour security via CCTV, large external terraces with radiant heating, floor to ceiling windows and integrated fixtures and fittings, its design integrity is second to none in the Adelaide market. Prices for a one-bedroom apartment start from $360,000.
Thom Buchanan’s work will take place from 4.30pm to 7.30pm on Thursday at 69 Light Square.
