Miraggio (aka Seated Figure)

Pino Conte
Bronze statue
Sidney Myer Music Bowl, Kings Domain

Miraggio, a bronze statue of young slender woman listening to music, came into the city's public art collection 1964. An anonymous 'Lover of Italy' donated it to the Sidney Myer Music Bowl Trust and Melbourne City Council. Following the re-landscaping of the site, Miraggio was reinstalled in October 2001. To be faithful to the donor's wishes and the apparent intent behind the work, the figure is installed as if she were part of the audience.
