The Beehive

Artist Zanny Begg’s video art installation addresses one of Sydney’s enduring murder mysteries.

On 4 July 1975, the crusading journalist, heiress and anti-development campaigner Juanita Nielsen went to a meeting at a Kings Cross underworld club. She was never seen again.

In this innovative fiction and documentary video installation, artist Zanny Begg and creative producer Philippa Bateman weave the tropes of true crime and cold case stories with themes of gentrification, corruption and non-conformity.

The Beehive is assembled by randomising software. Each screening has a unique duration of up to 33 minutes.

An Enigma Machine production.
An Artbank + ACMI commission.



Tuesdays to Saturdays, 10am to 5pm

Saturday 5 January to Saturday 23 February 2019
