The Culture of Forgetting

The Culture of Forgetting

The Culture of Forgetting is an installation that celebrates the many faces and stories, backgrounds and beginnings of Melbournians. Melbourne has been transformed by absorbing a myriad of cultures. We hear about their connection to Melbourne as well as their lives, homes, stories and worlds they may have left behind. The installation consists of a series of photographic portraits as well as sound recordings of stories told by the subjects. A photo of each storyteller is placed in the foyer of the Malthouse and the stories are played through speakers while audiences’ view the portraits from the comfort of a cosy beanbag, leaving them to match each story with a portrait.

Malthouse Theatre Foyer, 113 Sturt St Southbank

Lead Artist Georgina Naidu. Community Partner Australian Multicultural Foundation. Supported by Office of Multicultural Affairs and Citizenship, Immigration Museum, Helen Light.
