Immersive Video Installation
Disco Instamatic is a large-scale, hyper-colour projection work, underscored by an original disco soundtrack by Tanzer, remixed by Butch Le Butch.
Featuring 20 stars of Melbourne’s dynamic queer arts scene this immersive installation, created in collaboration with queer screen magazine Sissy Screens, unites music, drag, dance and visual art.
Tanzer collaborated with all the participating artists to explore how identity, character and costume informed their practices and self-development. The resulting video portraits not only showcase the diversity of Melbourne LGBTQIA+ creative talent, they investigate how many queer artists share a personal journey finding liberation in an alter-ego, a character, an elevated ‘true self'.
Free to drop in, open Thu 14 to Sat 16 July.
