Recipients: Georges Mora Foundation Fellowship

A focus on new media links the work of many of the Georges Mora Fellowship recipients.

Current recipient

Inez de Vega: DISORDER!: Lillian Temple-Dumble performing transgression in Australian art.

Crossing over between video and performance, Inez de Vega’s project will use theatrical or cinematic methods to present narrative-based outcomes from her research. She will explore the theme of transgression through her new character – Lillian Temple-Dumble – described as ‘a cross between an art educator, consultant and counsellor’ who skirts the line between comedy and considered opinion.

Inez de Vega is a practising performance and video artist who graduated from the University of Melbourne, Victorian College of the Arts, with a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Honours) in 2011.
