Drawing on social spaces outside the museum, such as the amusement park, zoo, or playground, the interactions that Höller proposes through objects and situations open up a range of new and unexpected sensory revelations in art.

Underscoring the 2014 Melbourne Festival microtheme of circus, the spectacular life-size Golden Mirror Carousel offers visitors to Federation Court a powerfully different physical and mental encounter than its traditional fairground counterpart. With each slow turn, participants are carried further into a gleaming, gilded looking-glass reflection, a step and a world away.

Golden Mirror Carousel is supported by the Loti & Victor Smorgon Fund.
Presented by Melbourne Festival and National Gallery of Victoria, with the assistance of Gagosian Gallery, New York.
