The top quality art continues to arrive at Bunbury Regional Art Galleries with the arrival of Light Moves: Contemporary Australian Video Art, a major travelling exhibition from the National Gallery of Australia (NGA) featuring new media work by some of Australia’s leading artists.
Light Moves presents seven major works by contemporary Australian artists which explore the possibilities of the body in video. Each work is an example of great contemporary storytelling, made by the leading proponents of the video form in Australia.
The exhibition draws on work acquired over the last three years for the National Collection, and provides a neat and highly accessible survey of contemporary video practice in this country. As well as being deeply engaging, the experience of this work is also contemplative.
Light Moves includes projected and screen-based works which show the body performing in a range of real and imagined spaces. Work will be featured by Daniel Crooks, Hayden Fowler, Shaun Gladwell, Gabriella and Silvana Mangano, David Rosetzky, Julie Rrap and Christian Thompson, each of whom has developed an international profile for their work.
Light Moves: Contemporary Australian Video Art will be exhibited at Bunbury Regional Art Galleries February 18 to April 17.
