Works in Hobart Australia

BIO
Anita Bacic is a Hobart-based artist who explores media old and new, with a focus on participatory experiences. Bacic is fascinated with the construction of stories, images and experiences and how we as individuals can actively contribute and interact in these processes. She continues to explore works which encourage curiosity, participation, personal connections and self-reflection that in turn potentially challenge our perceptions and how we see and interpret the world around us.

Bacic has explored older pre-cinema technologies, including camera obscura as installations and street-based mobile experiences for a number of years. Bacic’s work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally and has participated in Parramatta Lanes in Sydney, White Night Melbourne, Nextwave Festival, Electrofringe New Media Arts Festival, ANAT’s Portable Worlds I & II, amberPlatform and Videobrasil.

Reflux - stereoscopic photography, video installation & kinetic sculpture


Reflux - A group exhibition presented by Anita Bacic, Sandra Landolt and Tina Fiveash, which reveals a fusion of recycled technologies and digital media, re-examining overlooked details of our everyday lives.

Anita Bacic - In Ringa Raja clouds swirl within an austere geodesic dome, constructed simply from cardboard triangles. An imaginary world contained within a paper shell; a representation of dreams missed from a time in the past where we would lie on the ground and stare at the sky.

Tina Fiveash - Quiescense I - X are a series of anaglyptic (3-D) photographs which essentially explore our interconnectedness as human beings, on both a physical and spiritual level, focusing on the face, as a universally recognised key for gaining insight into another person’s soul. The eyes in particular, are often described as being the “windows to the soul”, and in the words of Japanese novelist, Kobo Abe, the face is like “a roadway between oneself and others”.

Sandra Landolt - Sandra plays with the idea of Reflux, as the medical term for any deviation from a healthy or normal condition. Her video work displays in a playful way, how a wind-up toy is fighting time, and her kinetic sculpture represents a discarded toy, altered and adapted to a new function.
