At Let Them Eat Cake 2015 Georgina brought a simple black and white drawing to life in her temporary installation Sketched. Covered in white fabric and edged with black lines, these humble pieces of street furniture were drawn into the landscape of Werribee Mansion. Through exposed seams, dangling thread and handmade imperfections, Georgina sought to intrigue and engage passers-by, with a tangible hand-crafted object that they can easily connect to and have a sense of the process of making.
About Let Them Eat Cake 2015:
Storming headfirst into its third boutique outing, Let Them Eat Cake returns to the pristine lawns of Werribee Mansion for New Year’s Day 2015. With its rakish feel, architecturally abstract aesthetic and cutting-edge sound, this promises to be an adventure deep into a utopia slick with Babylonian sensory delight. You want sound? Cake has sound… five stages of arguably the strongest underground electronic line-up seen in Melbourne to date. You want feeding? Cake has food… the food rave arena promises a carnival of taste, with morsels to tempt from some of Australia’s most intriguing providores, from sizzling street food to boutique cuisine, but always and only the very best.You want more? Cake has more… Cake has performers that verge on the wildly exotic, art that makes the mind twitch and cocktails that would make the mad Queen and her many consorts blush.
Festivals, by their very nature, offer a glimpse into a future where anything is possible. Let Them Eat Cake is a golden ticket to a decadent garden realm where reality is challenged. It is an escape from the confines and the crowds of the city, a playground in which a uniquely arts-focused event with the very best in electronic music plays hard.
