Jackalope Pavilion is a pop-up venue hosting the 'Rain Room' installation.
Housed in a purpose-built pavilion by March Studio, Rain Room is a permanent part of the Jackalope Art Collection.
An ethereal architectural statement, the ‘Jackalope Pavilion' is a creative and artistic space, through which Jackalope can showcase public art and activations in an urban context.
The launch of the Pavilion and decision to bring Rain Room to Australia also supports a key part of Jackalope's undertaking to bring internationally significant art to Australia.
Rain Room acknowledges the traditional custodians of the St Kilda region, the Boon Wurrung people.
Art Group RANDOM INTERNATIONAL run a collaborative studio for experimental practice within contemporary art. Founded in 2005 by Hannes Koch and Florian Ortkrass, today they work with larger teams of diverse and complementary talent out of studios in London and Berlin. Questioning aspects of identity and autonomy in the post-digital age, the group's work invites active participation. Random International explores the human condition in an increasingly mechanised world through emotional yet physically intense experiences. The artists aim to prototype possible behavioural environments by experimenting with different notions of consciousness, perception, and instinct.
RAIN ROOM MELBOURNE
Having captivated over half a million patrons worldwide, Random International's monumental artwork, Rain Room, will make its Southern Hemisphere debut in Melbourne. A 100 square metre field of continuous rainfall, Rain Room is a responsive environment engaging all the senses, allowing you to be fully immersed in the rain while simultaneously protected from it. A globally significant work, Rain Room seeks to explore how human relationships to each other and nature are increasingly mediated through technology.
