UooUoo (pronounced you-you) has been created by award-winning Melbourne artist Alexander Knox, who also created the iconic sculpture ‘Creature’ that stands in the main foyer of the RCH.
UooUoo is an imaginary Australian creature whose shape is loosely drawn from the wombat and dugong. A mysterious being, UooUoo is highly empathetic, playful and brave, but can be mischievous at times.
One hundred UooUoos will be dotted throughout laneways, streets, parks, beaches and public spaces across Melbourne and Geelong.
The herd of 10 Geelong UooUoos have found a new habitat at Federal Mills within the Pivot City Innovation Precinct, 33 Mackey Street North Geelong. This exciting new habitat will open its doors on Monday 1 February and will run until Sunday 21 March! Find out more.
