Imaginary Animal Real Estate

A Furr & Fethaz Real Estate project by Eva Alisic was aimed to make you both laugh and reflect.

The sublime and stunning property offerings were intended to make the audience think about inner-city biodiversity, housing affordability and land rights, within the broader context of the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals.

What role can artists play in raising ambitions as well as proposing new ideas and concepts to help local communities everywhere achieve greater social and ecological sustainability?

Artist Statement
Eva Alisic’s art practice grows out of her academic practice at the Melbourne School of Population and Global Health (University of Melbourne). In collaboration with people with lived experience, policy makers and a range of practitioners, Eva studies how young people and families deal with trauma and disadvantage. Her sculptural, digital and performance works build on these findings and the experience of doing research in general, as well as a broader interest in climate and social justice. From 2016 to 2019 Eva was involved in an international project on how researchers can help achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Her works often incorporate text and found objects, in this case the ‘found texts’ of real estate advertisements.
