For CAPITAL CITY, the exhibition resulting from a residency at the City of Melville’s Heathcote Museum and Gallery Mùller has developed a series of possibilities from existing stories and objects, building fictionalized narratives so that we are able to consider what was, what may have been, and what may still become. Mùller’s narratives challenge existing historical evidence and mythology surrounding the site and lead to new opportunities in our perception of the past.
A multidisciplinary approach including film, installation, sound and found objects extends to a hybridisation of the chronicles-accounts yarns- anecdotes and possibly even legends about the place. Mùller is not interested in notions of historical accuracy here, but rather in describing other possibilities, and potentially new truths.
The project is as much an individual journey for the artist as it is a collective passage through narrative, sound, performance and intervention between collaborators Tom Mùller, Dr Andrew Botfield, Horst Kornberger and Soula Veyradier.
