La Puerta del Laberinto (Door to the Labryinth)

Exhibition / Australia
March 17, 2017 - March 26, 2017
Castlemaine Art Museum
14 Lyttleton Street, Castlemaine

For the 2017 Castlemaine State Festival, Leeroy is creating a temporary sculptural installation, La Puerta Del Laberinto, for the exterior of the Castlemaine Art Museum. In keeping with Leeroy’s preferred installation method, La Puerta Del Laberinto (The Door of the Labyrinth), responds to the unique characteristics and context of place and will be made with recycled materials collected from the local area.

Leeroy’s works often intertwine the visual arts with fashion, film and theatre, as he takes his inspiration from mythology, film and video games.  Leeroy has been recognised and awarded consistently throughout his career, with his artworks featured beyond the Philippines in Singapore, Japan, Australia and in American pop culture, with one of his creations worn by Lady Gaga for her music video ‘Marry the Night.'

Leeroy received an ACC Fellowship in 2015 to observe best practices in contemporary arts, developing technologies, and public art processes in the United States.
