Alisha Abate presents A red wine cheers to the Intimacies of Industry – a sculptural intervention and event program within a National Trust heritage-listed bluestone building at Pipemakers Park, Maribyrnong. Following an intensive period of research into the archives of the Living Museum of the West, Abate presents both sculptural and performative responses to the architecture and history of the Maribyrnong area.

Intimacies of Industry responds to distinct architectural elements, revealing industrial features that form part of the social and cultural histories of the area.

Abate draws attention to the concrete pipes manufactured at the site, creating parallels between these pipes as a supportive architectural element hidden within the built infrastructure of Melbourne as a metaphor for the marginalised stories of individuals who worked in the various industries, documented in Living Museum of the West’s archive and beyond.

These histories are understood by the artist as ‘soft’ infrastructure; explored further through an event program which includes a site-specific response by poet and dancer Adolfo Aranjuez and a range of other context relevant performances, to be announced on the Midsumma website closer to the date.
