A huge digital projection of the Spirit Eel will weave its way along the facade of Hamer Hall for the second time this July. Titled Ancestral Memory, it will give Victorians another opportunity to watch the story of the Spirit Eel’s journey after the first unveiling was marred by a pandemic lockdown.

The physical manifestation of the Spirit Eel in Ancestral Memory was created by First Nations interdisciplinary artist Maree Clarke (Mutti Mutti/Yorta Yorta/Boon Wurrung/Wamba Wamba) and emerging artist Mitch Mahoney (Boon Wurrung/Barkindji).

Ancestral Memory was first commissioned by Arts Centre Melbourne and RISING.
