LOCATION / No Vacancy Gallery QV

Belgian contemporary artist Schellekens is interested in identity, choices, and conventions entering our lives and the impact of geopolitical power on the micro and macro levels of society. The work of Schellekens is often a blend of poetry, surrealism, humour and absurdism that balances on the verges of urban art, Dadaism and performative art. As an artist he often seeks a (direct) one-on-one interaction between audience and artwork. Schellekens creates works under his own name and is part of the collective Schellekens & Peleman.
The collective is best known for their iconic artwork ‘Inflatable Refugee’, a figure of an inflated refugee sailing on a boat from city to city.

‘Inflatable Refugee’ will arrive to the city of Melbourne on the Yarra river, in collaboration with the Immigration Museum Victoria and the City of Melbourne on June 17th. The work will be welcomed by the Lord Mayor of Melbourne, Mr. Robert Doyle.
