The Knot
Become delightfully entangled in an art experience like no other. Taking centre-stage at Fed Square this winter is a bold, large-scale, immersive artwork, never before seen in Australia from French artist Cyril Lancelin – The Knot. The Knot is based on a knitting node or trefoil knot, with several nodes juxtaposed and connected by a continuous line. The immersive installation is designed to both fill a space and divide it into different sections, becoming a maze of passages that invite you to bend down, step over, and weave through to get around. As you experience this artwork, you also become part of it as your movements diverge and intersect with those of others. Each evening The Knot will be illuminated as it lights up our chilly winter nights. We invite you to become delightfully entangled in The Knot! Celebrate all things French at Fed Square The Knot will launch following Bastille Day – France’s national day – on July 15. The French celebrations continue that weekend at Fed Square for the Bastille Day French Festival. And from August 27–September 5, join us at Fed Square to bid adieu to The Knot for our Frenchy Weekends celebrations, featuring the Frenchy Weekends Film Festival, Frenchy Fed Free Workshops, live music and giveaways.

Curious Creatures
Step deeper into a glowing world where things are never quite as they seem – and come and meet some very Curious Creatures at Fed Square this winter.   Each Friday and Saturday evening from August 13–August 21, from 6-8pm Fed Square will play host to one of these mystical creatures from another realm – you are invited down the rabbit hole to meet them.  As The Knot lights up the night, you might find you are tailed by The Messenger – a glowing formidable futuristic archangel, graceful and imposing, bringing its message of light and love to all. You might spy intergalactic visitors from another world, as The Skulls Squires try to engage you in their mischievous plots.   Each of these special Curious Creatures is a work of art, engineering and masterful puppetry, and will bring your Anything But Square experience at Fed Square to a whole new level!

Anything But Square Winter
Expect the unexpected this winter at Fed Square! While winter can be bleak, you’ll find what you seek – maybe something Frenchy and chic? Or at least unique! – here at Fed Square! You may get beautifully lost in an intricate maze of hazy pink light and rooms within knotted rooms, with The Knot … You might find your inner Monet or Cézanne, or meet your future best friend or love, while attending a Frenchy Fed Free workshop … You could take a turn about the ice at The Winter Village, carving snowflakes and ice-mermaids in the sky with mitten-clad hands … And as you look up at the dazzling city lights overlooking Fed Square, and get carried away to another hemisphere with a funny or moving or quirky French film, or feel your body thrum with the beat of live music … you will know. This is how winter in Melbourne is meant to be.
