Filmic Memorials i @ Australian Centre for the Moving Image

Filmic Memorials i
Memory Grid
Australian Centre for the Moving Image
until March 6th, 2006.

As part of my ten year research investigation into memory and film, the Filmic Memorials project disects family 8mm home movies through spatially animated and painterly sequences captured as digital video on plasma screens (x6).

The companion work to this exhibition - focusing on 1950s footage of Europe - was screened at the Perth Institute of Contemporary Art, Perth in September last year. This installment examines Victorian centric locations captured on film and how filmic narratives are generated from such places through the intermediation of the moving image and of self.

The exhibition will be displayed until March 6th.
