Hiromi Tango: Photo by Tree Faerie

Hiromi Hotel: Rainbow by acclaimed Japanese Australian artist Hiromi Tango is a sensory art installation that takes inspiration from the rainbow, drawing on the colours and symbology of this natural wonder. The rainbow is a recurring theme in Tango’s work, however it has particular significance for Lismore. Lismore is in the ‘Rainbow Region’ of Northern NSW and its ever-changing weather means residents enjoy the regular privilege of seeing these beautiful arches of colour. The significance of the rainbow to Lismore is so pertinent that the Auslan symbol for ‘Lismore’ is the sign ‘rainbow’, expressed through an upward arching motion of the hand. Importantly, the rainbow is also a symbol for the LGBTIQA+ community, themselves a key part of Lismore’s cultural fabric.

People viewing Hiromi Hotel: Rainbow can experience it as they would any exhibition, or they can get actively involved. This gentle opportunity for engagement, and Tango’s artistic processes that encourage movement and uncomplicated human interaction, have known therapeutic benefits. 

Activities are led by artist facilitators every Thursday. Artist facilitator Sigrid Macdonald will lead activities in Auslan for the Deaf community. Please check the gallery website for details.
