Have you ever been through a dead relatives house shortly after they passed away? It's a tableau of sadness seeing how they lived and died - all the things they collected and chose to keep a story in itself. Janet Cardiff & George Bures Miller's installation at 'The Dwelling' at ACCA feels like a room that was recently vacated - all the record players left playing, starting and stopping in an hypnotically creepy rhythm building to dramatic climaxes.

This is the room of an obsessive collector, someone who lived by themselves - no space left or created for visitors. The entire exhibition is built around this installation - it is quite simply the most beautiful thing in Melbourne at this moment. Go and see it as soon as you can.

It stirred up so many feelings of longing that I couldn't shake even after we left.

My photo
I like rainbows, crystals, coloured pencils, swimming, manifesting, visualising, poetry, going out for breakfast, graphic novels, air conditioning, miniature anything, clothing made from synthetic fabrics, travelling, travelling, staying in nice hotels, headphones, husbears + soft hands. I don't like people who make me feel tired.
