LIGHT MOVES – Contemporary Australian Video Art

"Bodies of all kinds moving in space." 

This phenomenon has been explored in a myriad of ways by artists ever since video art took off as an exciting new development in the 1960s. The select group of works displayed in this exhibition continues to further the possibilities of the medium in poetic works that speak to their own personal interests and histories.

Featuring work made between 2009 and 2014 by some of Australia's most internationally-significant video artists including Daniel Crooks, Shaun Gladwell and David Rosetzky, the works featured in Light moves explore the possibilities of movement, in most cases the body moving in space, in contemporary video. Each is an example of contemporary storytelling, inviting viewers to think about the place and significance of real bodies in a contemporary world. A world which is increasingly digitised, where many interactions happen in virtual spaces and online.
