WHEN : 17th September, 6:00 - 8:00pm
WHERE : Red Hill, QLD
An off-site experimental film screening and audiovisual performance with Caitlin Franzmann, Dale Gorfinkel and Ross Manning. The short films (co-curated with John Edmond) and performance will offer insight into the artists’ process and thinking in relation to the historical artefacts and materials uncovered at The Foundry, a 19th century warehouse located in the residential slopes of Red Hill, Brisbane. The studio was the site in which The Human Factor sculptures commissioned for world expo 88 were produced. These 90 statues situated throughout the expo site were fibreglass casts of people doing ordinary things. From drovers to lifeguards to street performers, the sculptures were intended to convey a sense of life in Australia. Using the now decaying sculptures, industrial materials and video footage from the site, the three artists will reveal a journey through imagination, collective memory and unlearning of dominant histories.
This collaboration is the first stage of a larger project for the artists and will feed into the development of a video installation to be screened at the IMA in October as part of the Green Screen program: http://www.ima.org.au/
