In the pursuit of repetition (fame and squalor)

Kel and Alison camp out under Federation Square as part of an ongoing building process of accumulation. Each day audiences journey down into this lived-in space and witness a series of mesmerising performances that explore the pattern, repetition, similarity and difference created in the work. This work explores the extremes of our society and what we know about them. It is created from the perspective of the artists – the honesty of their experiences in relation to the themes of fame and squalor.
