The Meaning of Moorabbin is Open for Inspection

Using photography, film, video and design, The Meaning of Moorabbin is Open For Inspection is a site-specific installation work that plays with Australian notions of family and suburbia. Staged as an open inspection, the work is introduced by a ‘real estate agent’ who invites visitors to view the property. Ambient set pieces are the idiosyncratic features made to attract prospective buyers. Ruminations about the suburbs and the suburban house are evoked as visitors move through the property. In the final room, a camera is set up and the visitor is invited to comment on the meanings the property has evoked for them. These to-camera confessions are then uploaded on to the project’s website. See more
