What Is

Curated and presented by Kim Donaldson
What is Australia like? There are those that are interested in sport, those that are political, those that like to travel, those that like to just sit and watch, others who don’t mind waiting and those that like to do. There are also those who are interested in popular culture, others who are into architecture and others still who are into sci-fi or environmental issues. There is also a lot of space and it never really gets cold.
This program is not about narratives but about what is.

Artists: Sanja Pahoki, OSW, Brie Trenerry, Lyndal Jones, Laresa Kosloff, Taree Mc Kenzie, Janenne Eaton, Sue Dodd, Kim Donaldson, Jo Scicluna, Russell Kitchin, Jarrah de Kuijer and Santina Amato.

Psychogeography as term has become popular with the Renaissance of the ideas of Situationism International. It is not an academic subject matter, but a way to directly interact with the urban environment and to research the subjective and political entanglement of places and cities. The program presents a wide range of such artistic responses to psychological impacts and urban geography. The Surveillance Camera Players both used and protested again CCTV recording with playacts specifically designed for surveillance cameras. Sari Carel photographs abandoned contemporary houses in Israel. She thus reflects on the left behind dreams, promises and plans connected with single-family houses. Thomas Fuerhapter and Ken Paul Rosenthal give a voice to psychological effects of urban experiences, not avoiding the irony of the possibility to overrate such experience. Elke Marhoefer deconstructs the interaction of political talks by young international artists, and confronts those with her own media interaction with young black youths in the streets of New York. She is thus reflecting the mixture of failure and need of such practise.

• 22 h • 10 pm Monumental curated by Kim Collmer


curated and presented by Kim Collmer with assistance from the VoyeurCollective
Monumental shows work which in some ways both subverts and rallies behind the notion of monument. Often a singular object suggesting timelessness, the nature of monuments and their meaning becomes more complex as we see evidence of crumbling dynasties around us. The theme for the screening is loosely addressed with works about religious ritual, technology, unfilled journeys, political commemoration, home, pompous ritual, cultural history, and nature's glories.

Chasing the Pools 8 min 30s, DV, 2005

Chasing the Pools is a single-channel video based on an immersive performance /installation exploring live cameras on dancers seamlessly integrated into the landscape of live-mix video projection. Their lit bodies became one moving image, dematerializing or re-materializing the body, while the background remained another. These channels were projected onto numerous scrims in a large tree grove. The video combines the composite live-feed image with the original source material.
