Aphids x ACCA: Destiny Screening
From December 4 to March 20, ACCA will explore concepts of public space, art and how the two intersect in a new exhibition, Who’s Afraid of Public Space?, encompassing artist projects, installations and ‘interventions’ extended across Melbourne.
A highlight of the program is a collaboration with experimental arts organisation Aphids, a one-day only screening of their new film Destiny in Carlton’s brutalist Cardigan House carpark on December 11.
Destiny is made with on-demand, gig economy workers and explores global experiences of the platform economy. It will be screened on a loop throughout the day from 2 to 10pm and at 4pm, there will be an hour-long panel discussion with creators Amelia Wallin, Eugenia Lim and worker–performers Cher Tan and Wasay who will reflect on the making of the work and how convenience is shaping bodies, behaviours and perceptions of time. Entry to the screening and the panel is free.
Aphids is a long-standing experimental arts organisation, currently led by co-directors Eugenia Lim, Lara Thoms and Mish Grigor and seeks create meaningful exchanges with audiences through performance and “unpredictable encounters in the public realm”.
