Jeremy Hynes Award: Michael Candy

WHEN : 14th October, 4:00 - 6:00pm
WHERE : Institute of Modern Art

Michael Candy’s work Ether Antenna (2017), a film inspired by Buddhist tales, follows the story of ten robot characters on a journey through the urban landscapes of Nepal. The mechanical adventure is scored by the tune of Pauline Anna Strom’s electronic soundscapes, exploring our relationship with ecology and technology.

Candy has been involved in many international and local projects, notably: First Draft (Sydney), Next Wave (Melbourne), The Instrument Builders Project, Hackteria Lab (Yogyakarta), and Hawapi (Peru).

See the work in the screening room 10–14 October, with a closing event Saturday, 14 October, 4pm.

Jeremy Hynes Award: Since 2009, the IMA has had the honour of presenting the award to an experimental Queensland artist in the earlier stages of their career, made possible by a bequest made by the family of Jeremy Hynes in his name. The 2017 shortlist artists Lucy Forsberg, Michael Candy, Elizabeth Willing, and Naomi Blacklock will be presenting projects and events throughout October. The recipient of this years’ award is to be announced at IMA’s Annual Party on Saturday, 28 October.
