Getting There

A mesmerising audio-visual installation that projects light through water particles to form shapes and intangible structures in the air.

*Please note that tickets do not need to be booked for this event.*

Fed Square will light up over 2 nights for the Art After Dark Melbourne festival with Constellations, an art installation that has never been seen before in Australia by international artist Joanie Lemercier.

Lemercier has been expanding the possibilities of light as a medium and space as a canvas for the past ten years. After exploring languages like video mapping, live shows and gallery installations, in Constellations, he uses an unlikely material to present his meticulous work: water.

This show becomes a gate for the exploration of the cosmos. 3D-like visuals allow the audience to move from the heart of a black hole into deep space, travelling through planets and stars as we look for the limits of the universe. Constellations is a fascinating journey where the vectorial, monochromatic aesthetics of Lemercier dialogues with the electronic soundscapes of producer Paul Jebanasam.

Each show is 16 minutes in duration and there will be a 5 minute break between each show. You’ll also be able to enjoy complimentary tea, coffee or hot chocolate to keep warm along with free tasty treats like mini pies and pizzas from HERO and glow in the dark fairy floss (please note these will only be available on Friday and Saturday evening, and until stocks run out).

We’re so excited about this installation that we’ve decided to extend it for two evenings beyond Art After Dark Melbourne, so make sure you don’t miss out. Constellations will be active until 1am on the evenings of 13-15 May and midnight on 16 May.
