Walk the streets of Melbourne and Brisbane and be astonished as you’re surrounded by large-scale images moving around and meeting in city areas. Brisbane-based artist-run initiative inbetweenspaces has collaborated with people from disaster-affected communities in Queensland and Victoria to discuss, arrange and photograph their most personal objects.  Moving simultaneously throughout Melbourne and Brisbane, Commonwealth presents large-scale texts of these discussions and photographs of intricately arranged personal items. This movement across the two cities explores the communal impact of the loss and relocation of objects, people and communities.
