The Beehive: Who Killed Juanita Neilsen?

A non-linear documentary video installation by artist Zanny Begg that looks at the unsolved murder and mystery of Sydney activist and heiress Juanita Neilsen. She campaigned against the violent eviction of tenants in her suburb, who were being pushed out to make way for apartment blocks.

Juanita disappeared on 4 July 1975 after a business appointment at the Carousel Cabaret. Her body has never been found and her murderers never charged.

The Beehive is randomly assembled from a reservoir of scripted fictions, documentary interviews and choreographed sequences. The software, created by programmer Andy Nicholson, randomly selects a different combination of footage with each viewing, offering different glimpses and interpretations of this infamous true crime.

With a diverse cast, the story of Juanita is told in myriad ways. The video installation is free, daily.

This work is made possible by the inaugural Artbank + ACMI Commission.
