Artist Zoë Croggon uses archive imagery to respond to the architectural metamorphosis taking place as part of the Melbourne Arts Precinct Transformation Project.
 
Croggon has a background in dance, and the body has long been the focus of her work. She presents the trained body and modern architecture as fascinating counterparts, each unyielding, severe, and rigorously functional in form.
 
For this project, she has been invited to comb through Arts Centre Melbourne’s archival imagery held in the Australian Performing Arts Collection, to create an architectural and historical synthesis responding to this significant shift in Melbourne’s cultural fabric.
