Launceston residents have been flocking to the Gorge to see Amanda Parer’s installation Man lighting up the First Basin.
The work is part of Mona Foma, and will be visible until January 20.

“It brings something different – and it makes the Gorge look really big,” said Ella Baker-Condon, one of those who caught the first glimpse of the work on Sunday night.
This month, after a mini-launch last year in Tasmania’s second-biggest city, Mona Foma is moving its full-scale operation to Launceston.
The music and arts festival has been run by the iconoclastic Museum of Old and New Art (Mona) in Hobart since 2008, with about a third of attendees coming from interstate.
Its first Launceston iteration will take place on the weekend of January 18 – 20, and will be “fraught with a sense of adventure,” said festival curator (and Violent Femmes bassist) Brian Ritchie.
