This week from Monday 5th to Friday 9th of March the Melbourne Chapter held an exhibition in the foyer of Bourke Place, a 224 metre office block in the centre of the city. The exhibition space was on the Bourke St frontage to one side of the central lift core. We used our shoji screens to help define the exhibition and provide a suitable background for arrangements that were to be seen from the front view only. Other arrangements were to be viewed from all around, including four larger installation works.
This view shows about two thirds of the exhibits seen from the main approach to the space. To the right of this view is the lift core...
...which became the back drop for this group of ikebana works.
This general view is of the exhibition as seen from the foyer cafe. Below are the individual ikebana works, the names of their creators and school of ikebana.
