On commission, Dupain took thousands of photographs of the Sydney Opera House, revealing its construction from beginning to end. Later he described the completed building from a photographer’s perspective: ‘As the light moves across it during the day, it changes its form and shape… it’s full of moods… and photographically speaking, its form is fantastic’ (1986).
This video art contains a collection of works by Australian artists.
Shaun Gladwell is one of Australia’s leading contemporary artists. Gladwell is pictured below, in front of his video art, Broken Dance (Beatboxed), which will show at the Art of New South Wales in Sydney from the 23rd of August to the 21st of October. The artist will appear at the Gallery to discuss his method on the 1st of September.
This upcoming show by the Sydney Dance Company is exciting. They have co-commissioned four works by Australian women choreographers:
Dream Lucid by Melbournian Stephanie Lake uses form, colour and magnetism to explore the flux between chaos and control. In Fanatic, Adelaide’s Larissa McGowan uses humour and superb physical expression to investigate what happens when Alien and Predator movie fans vent via YouTube. Desire, by Brisbane-based Lisa Wilson, explores a range of responses from emotional connection to aggressive sparks, and yield, by Sydney Dance Company’s Emily Amisano, considers how we come to know people through their actions, responses and boundaries.
The show is on at the Sydney Opera House, Playhouse from 20 August to 2 September 2012.
