The Melbourne International Arts Festival commences this week and runs until the 28th October. As with every good festival there is also an accompanying Fringe Festival. As part of the Fringe festival this year, there is an installation entitled “Material World”, displayed in a small house like structure built from personal belongings. It is located right in the centre of town at Federation Square. I may well show you the house itself tomorrow, but inside are these wonderful dolls. Created by Asylum seekers each with it’s own meassage, these dolls are all unique and tell a different story. One simply says “I miss my kids and will never forget them anytime, even in my sleep”. More about the Fringe festival and this event can be found here. More about the Arts Festival can be found here.
