About Melinda Hetzel & Co.
Melinda Hetzel & Co. collaborate to create extraordinary site-responsive and participatory artworks, which invite audiences to experience and participate in art in new ways.Melinda Hetzel and collaborators are known for creating deeply evocative, visually stunning performance experiences and can be found working at the edges of our respective forms. A multi-talented group of artists, we persist in raising questions about the complex and evolving relationships between the human animal and the natural and human-built worlds, evoking collective memories of grief, loss, longing and transformation. Collaboration and meaningful audience connection are at the heart of our work. We specialise in creating intimate art experiences within public space, which simultaneously form a spectacle for passersby, creating room for unexpected discovery and possibility. Based in Naarm (Melbourne), we pursue a fascination with how live arts, in combination with new technologies, can affirm threads of interconnectedness between human beings and the rapidly changing world in which we live. Since 2013 this artist-led collective has created a diverse suite of works including - participatory performance-installation, Urban Cocoon, augmented reality experience, Fly By Night, live fortune-telling machine, Madame Tulalah's Magnificent Box, interactive, musical tree-installation, Between the Trees, durational, live and live-streamed performance-installation, Conservatory, and photographic pavement exhibition, Here We Walk. This body of work builds on Hetzel's decade as artistic director of visual theatre company Peepshow Inc.
