Shaun Gladwell: Stereo Sequences
|Author:||MARTIN ADRIAN et al|
Shaun Gladwell: Stereo Sequences has been conceived and created for ACMI's unique subterranean gallery and features a series of multi-screen video works that explore concepts of duality, parallels and mirroring. Using filmic devices such as long pans and slow-motion, Gladwell captures tightly choreographed, repetitive performances by classical ballerinas, helicopters, motorcycles, muscle cars, trials bike-riders and skateboarders. Gladwell's latest offerings radiate a distinct Australian sensibility, inspired by the unique landscape and local film culture, including Ozploitation era films. Many of the works are set in distinct Australian locations such as the Wollemi National Park, the open plains of Broken Hill and even Sydney's M5 underpass, each landscape a central character in the resulting work.
