The position of architects, artists and designers can be of a suggesting kind, proposing encapsulated answers or, en contraire, raise questions.

Fire is the generator of life that shaped cultures and civilisation as we know it today. It also is the destructive force, burning down Rome and hence civilisation but also nature itself. It is the symbol of disorder and chaos. But fire can also be a means for regeneration and rebirth.

The viewer is invited to engage critically with our creative discourse in order to imagine a better world of tomorrow for themselves.

 

This event is part of Melbourne Design Week 2021, an initiative of the Victorian Government
in collaboration with the NGV.
