Godfrey Hirst is proud to continue to support Geelong-born artist, Rone, in his recent exhibition TIME • RONE.
Set in the long-abandoned third-floor wing of Flinders Street Station, Time is a nostalgic love letter to mid-century Melbourne and a tribute to one of the city’s great icons.
This exhibit is Rone’s most ambitious project to date, for what is destined to be a multisensory installation, opening on 28th October (through to early 2023), featuring a number of our carpet and hard flooring products.
Developing the exhibition for the past three years, Time celebrates the grand scale and character of the site, as well as the minute detail of a period of Melbourne’s history long lost to progress.
Inspired by an era when European migrants powered the city’s booming manufacturing industries, this exhibition captures beauty in a forgotten, mid-century, working-class life.
To convey this, Rone explored various carpet designs and hard flooring that paid homage to the 1950-60’s era. Using With our Designer Jet® technology through GH Commerical, Rone was able to achieve the pattern, colour and texture desired to represent the spirit of Melbourne’s industrial past.
TIME • RONE is an immersive and unforgettable installation, you will feel as though you are within a movie rather than an exhibition.
