Mechanical puppetry sculptures at Federation Square, Melbourne
See the three sculptural shrines of handmade puppetry and electromechanical theatre created by Melbourne-based media artists, Cake Industries and Papermoon Puppet Theatre from Indonesia.
Each has its own identity representing past, present and future, yet together they create a circular loop of time. Like animated cabinets of curiosity, the moving sculptures are endlessly fascinating with their myriad of stimulants to feed the imagination.
“In our minds, time is not linear. Future becomes someone’s past, past has at one point been someone’s future, and all three periods overlap and intertwine in a complicated relationship that defies absolute definition.”
Anachron exhibited at Federation Square 13 - 22 June for the annual winter festival, The Light in Winter.
Co-commissioned by Fed Square Pty Ltd and City of Melbourne through the Arts Participation Program.
