Will Foster and Gabrielle de Vietri
Public Art Melbourne Biennial Lab, Melbourne Festival
18-23 October 2016
Through a process of embodied research, Gabrielle de Vietri and Will Foster from A Centre for Everything have discovered and developed the unspoken language used by traders at the Queen Victoria Market. From everyday dealings to embedded cultural codes, hand gestures are used to direct, connect, communicate and play across the stalls of the marketplace. Participants are invited to explore the contested past, present and future of the site in a hands-on self-guided tour.
