Artist-in-Residence project launch
a video database work by Linda Wallace
March 11 - 19
Opening: Friday March 11, 17.00 h.
At the launch LivingTomorrow will be discussed by Victoria Lynn, curator and writer, Australian Commissioner, Venice Biennale 2003 and former Creative Director of the Australian Centre for the Moving Image, Melbourne.
At 18.00 h. Linda Wallace introduces the work LivingTomorrow then Victoria Lynn speaks on archive, montage and network, followed by drinks.
LivingTomorrow realises a territory of place and placelessness. It mixes from a database of video fragments to three simultaneous, horizontally-projected image 'streams' -- video fragments of the classic northern Dutch landscape and imperial skies, with images of the urban corporate headquarter area on Amsterdam's fringes, and highly abstracted images derived from the colours and textures of women's headscarves. Into this visual context it fires 'remade readymades' -- video fragments of an internationally popular soap opera, complete with new subtitles. These characters, the artist's puppets, speak of real-life events in Holland as well as their desire to see beyond the world of appearances.
LivingTomorrow will be exhibited in the gallery as well as a selection of other works by Linda Wallace http://www.machinehunger.com.au/LivingTomorrow
