PHANTASMAGORIA is a free site responsive festival located at Bogong Village.
Curated by Madelynne Cornish & Philip Samartzis, PHANTASMAGORIA re-imagines Bogong Village through the lens of absence, disappearance and loss. This site responsive festival uses contemporary art practices to create illusion and spectacle in order to trace the vanishing individuals and communities that have marked the alpine region. It draws on local knowledge, historical documentation, artefacts, dreamtime stories and folklore to help construct a social context and landscape ecology for artworks focusing on the ephemeral, evanescent and sublime. Where the village itself is transformed into a world of shadows, murmurs and dreams.
Featured artworks include, video and sound works, installations, interactive artworks, site responsive performances, and an immersive sound garden comprising commissioned compositions.
