Join us for a new screening series that provides an opportunity to deep dive into the work of Australian artists making substantial contributions to moving image practice.
Part 1 in this series features the work of Jacqui Shelton. Shelton is an artist born on Barada Barna land, central Queensland, currently living and working in Narrm Melbourne. Shelton works with film-making, experimental sound, performance and writing to explore the complications of performance and presence, and how voice, language, and image can collaborate or undermine one another.
Shelton is especially interested in how embodied knowledge can be made public and activated to reveal a complex politics of living-together, and the tensions this makes visible. Recent work investigates language and voice as self-determining gestures that seeks to unsettle white-settler positions, working with vocality and colonised languages in a settler-state to propose a poetics of multiplicity.Anthology Screenings will be accompanied by a public program of talks and interviews, unpacking the complexities of each artist's oeuvre.
