Christine Johnson collaboration with Hassell Studio on the redevelopment initiative of Vanity Lane In Central Dandenong
Christine Johnson’s collaboration with Hassell Studio is currently in development, delivered by the Victorian Government through Development Victoria in partnership with the City of Greater Dandenong.
We are excited to keep you informed on the future progress of Christine Johnson’s contribution to the rejuvenation of Central Dandenong.
In early 2019 Christine Johnson was commissioned by the Faculty of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, Monash University to create remembrance artworks for Five Soldiers Untold Stories of World War One. The project pays tribute to the lives of five pharmacy students – Alan Couve, Malcolm Jones, Gordon Jewkes, Eric Bisset and Frank Cahir – who died as a result of World War One. Earlier this year the project won the highest award, Grand Gold at the CASE awards in Washington.
Vanity Lane is the site of the old Couve family pharmacy in Dandenong. Both of Joson Couve’s sons, Alan and his brother Tom were killed at Gallipoli in 1915.
