Filmed in international senate chambers, Angelica Mesiti’s large-scale video installation imagines a community of movement, poetry and song – exploring our need to come together democratically across many nations, to speak differently, act together, and form new assembles.

ASSEMBLY establishes an evolving set of translations from the written word to stenographic codes then music, and performance. Filmed in the Senate chambers of Italy and Australia, the three screens of ASSEMBLY travel through the corridors, meeting rooms and parliaments of government with performers imagining a community of movement, poetry and song.
