(from the exhibition blurb)..

"Shaun Wilson's artwork explores the ongoing relationships between film and memory. Much of the current work deconstructs narrative-based family 8mm home movies to then reconfigure this in context to a non-narrative filmic structure. He is interested in how places and people of the past, committed to film, can then be re-staged in the present to thereby change not only what we see in the subject, on film, but also how we connect with the subject and the memories brought forward and mapped into this process. The conceptual nature of Wilson's work is as much to do with the process of capturing and preserving the subject as it is with allowing the viewer to bring with them their own reveries that engages, and from this impact on, the subject."
