What is This?
Thresholds and transgressions in design, art and performance
Activated sculpture, performance, video, and sound in the collaborative work of artist and designer Anastasia La Fey and performance artist and choreographer Holly Durant.
Innovative design developed through and beyond function expands preconceived confines of “design” into realms that encompass artistic value, social & environmental attention and imaginative human experience. Creating an inhabitable space housing a series of activations, films, performances and public talks, the artists disrupt concrete definitions and formal delineations in design, opening fluid approaches intertwined with art and daily life that encourage communication, cooperation and change.
The artists would like to acknowledge the Wurundjeri, Djab Wurrung, Gunditjmara, and Gulidjan peoples of the Kulin Nation as the traditional custodians of the unceded lands and waters, on which they live, create and exhibit their work, and pay their respect to all First Nations Ancestors and Elders, past, present and emerging.
