Museum UNDONE is a playful encounter with the Kyneton Museum collection, engaging with history and its gaps, as part performance, part exhibition. Created by cross disciplinary artists and Metanoia Theatre, the work is an immersive choose-your-own journey through collective possibilities for an imagined future.
Performers (Alexandra Harrison, Jannete Hoe, Israel Aloni, Greg Ulfan, Görkem Acaroğlu, Yogashree Thirunavukarasu, Sermsah bin Saad) perform across the Kyneton Museum, in both indoor and outdoor locations. Audiences are free to roam the 90 minute performance at 7pm Fridays and Saturdays and 5pm on Sundays across June 2021, led only by their curiosity. Internationally acclaimed local visual artist, Desmond Lazaro re-curates the existing collection to immerse audiences in an exploration of our past, present and future. Taungurung artist Maddi Moser creates projections to cover the walls and ceilings both inside and outside the building, and local sound artist Kirri Buchler creates soundscapes to enhance the experience. Taungurung man Dennis Batty provides cultural consultation to project.
Museum UNDONE asks us to consider what the impact of the past is on the present? What are the stories we tell about ourselves? How do we want to be remembered in the future when we become history?
