PROJECT: Inez de Vega - Suite

Thursday, September 19, 2013 - Saturday, November 09, 2013, -

Lydiard St projection window

Suite is a mini musical melodrama, a meditation on being a nobody in a world where everybody wants to be a somebody. Borrowing footage from La dolce vita (The sweet life) by Italian Neo-Realist filmmaker Federico Fellini, performance artist Inez de Vega sings about the futility of life without youth, beauty and fame while wishing she was one of the director's celebrated heroines from the 1960s.

Inez de Vega is an Australian artist whose performances are captured in moving image and still photography. Her cinema-infused works play with our inherited screen culture to create theatrical representations of psychological neurosis, trauma and the female experience.
