RONE, Media Preview, Flinders St Station Ballroom, 27th Oct 2022 by Mary Boukouvalas

In his most expansive project yet, internationally renowned artist Rone is set to take over one of Melbourne’s most iconic locations with Time: an epic new installation that will occupy Flinders Street Station’s hidden third floor and ballroom, bringing a lost era of Melbourne history back to life. Over three years since its inception, Time opened to the public on Friday 28 October.

Over the past two decades, Melbourne-based artist Tyrone ‘Rone’ Wright has established an international reputation for his distinctive large-scale portraits and hauntingly atmospheric multimedia installations – which, since 2016, have pursued an increasingly ambitious scale.

Through his sensitive, detailed transformations of derelict and forgotten spaces, Rone invites audiences to engage in richly sensory experiences that present intriguing fictional histories and explore the divergent themes of beauty and decay, materiality and loss.
