Noticed something unusual in that patch of grass between Hamer Hall and the Arts Centre? It’s a house – an art installation, in fact – built by production designer and artist Christian Wagstaff. Evocative of suburban Melbourne houses decorated for Christmas, it’s called Deck the Houses. Christian explains what it’s all about in this short video…
Deck the Houses was commissioned by the Arts Centre Melbourne and is the first installment of what will become a Christmas village in that spot over the next three years. It’s free and on until Sunday 5 January.
