Screens in as part of the Mayhem Installation Program
Ovid’s classic Metamorphoses begins with the statement: “My purpose is to tell of bodies which have been transformed into shapes of a different kind.” A similar purpose emerges within Hive.
Hive is an exploration of metamorphosis and thresholds. Ingestion and regurgitation. The uncanny feeling of loosing one’s way. An observation of an otherworldly traversing of thresholds at once familiar and alien. Transformation and bodily ambiguity are a way of expressing, exploring, and possibly accepting those things we feel do not belong, are not quite right.
Bees are beings born of metamorphosis: an exploration of internal and external worlds; ghosts made solid that haunt the ruins of a broken body, but are somehow also hopeful and belonging. This is their home, their hive.

Mayhem Installation Program
A Month of Mayhem unleashes screenings, exhibitions, performances, seminars and workshops for Deaf and Disabled artists and audiences. This is the largest, most significant program of its kind ever to be held in Australia.
ADL Film Fest is thrilled to present works including shorts, animations, installations and outdoor projections made by Deaf and Disabled artists and filmmakers. These inventive and unapologetic works will change your preconceptions.
The Mayhem Installation Program runs in the State Library of South Australia Main Foyer during opening hours.
