Alister Yiap was commissioned in 2016 to deliver the public art componen of a new development in the City of Armadale's Mall precinct.
The result, The Guardian, is a stainless steel sculpture that acknowledges the aim and uses of the Jull Street Mall. The concept looks to enhance and become a statement entrance for the mall forming a part of City of Armadale's history and growing Public Art Collection. The sculpture placement faces the City's train station, making it a prominent marker and meeting point, which looks to entice and encourage the public to discover and explore the mall. This curiosity is further supported with the innovative use of spotlights encased within the sculpture to activate the area during evenings, whilst doubling as a safety feature for high visibility.
