A CURATED EXHIBITION SHOWCASING NEW MEDIA WORKS OF A COMMUNITY OF EMERGING PHOTOGRAPHERS, DESIGNERS AND VISUAL ARTISTS FOR MELBOURNE DESIGN WEEK 2021
Engaging with image-making, film, sound, projection and installation art; these creatives have been inspired by the unique, yet shared, peculiarity of the 2020 lockdown in Naarm. Despite the forced isolation, these young designers have demonstrated the boundless malleability of community, through personal reflection and visual storytelling as narrative intervention. In a world where human connection and wellness is impacted by an increasing reliance on digital technologies, artificial connectivity and separation from the natural realm, Archipelago serves as a reminder of what separated and distant individuals can achieve together, for the long-term benefit of community and environment.
Archipelago aims to encourage audiences to re-imagine the concept of community and stewardship through deepening understandings of the relationship one has with themselves within the natural realm.
