UNEARTHED by PluginHUMAN, Lorraine Brigdale and Akshat Nauriyal
6/63 Fitzroy Street, St Kilda, Boon Wurrung Country, VIC 3182
The 2021 Victoria–India Creative Collaboration has developed from the 2019 Asialink Arts delegation to EyeMyth in India. Inspired by the wild spaces that exist within and around us, Melbourne-based PluginHUMAN, Yorta Yorta artist Lorraine Brigdale and New Delhi-based Akshat Nauriyal bring you UNEARTHED, a projection-mapped mural and microverse that engages both physical and digital landscapes.
The artwork features a mural that spans the exterior of the PluginHUMAN studio, Fitzroy Street, St Kilda (Australia). Audiences can scan a code within the artwork to access a microverse – an online 3D audio-visual landscape. At night this artwork will be transformed into a projection mapped light experience.
UNEARTHED provides macro and micro perspectives. The imagery features contemporary re-workings of traditional Yorta Yorta (Australian indigenous) shields by Lorraine Brigdale and enlarged micrographs created by Betty Sargeant.
Presented with support from Asialink Arts, Australian High Commission India, Renew Australia and The Exertion Games Lab.
Opening Date: 3 December 2021
Time: 8.30pm AEDT
Location: 6/63 Fitzroy Street, St Kilda, Boon Wurrung Country, VIC 3182
The projection mapping starts at 8.30pm AEDT each night but the mural and microverse are accessible all the time.
