The Capitol acknowledges the people of the Woi wurrung and Boon wurrung language groups of the eastern Kulin Nation on whose unceded lands we conduct the business of the University. We respectfully acknowledge their Ancestors and Elders, past and present. We also acknowledge the Traditional Custodians and their Ancestors of the lands and waters across Australia where we conduct our business.

What is This?

Thresholds and transgressions in design, art and performance

An exhibition encompassing 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 embrace artistic value, social & environmental attention and imaginative human experience.

The artists create an inhabitable space disrupting 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.
