EUPHONY: LOUISE K WILSON RETROSPECTIVE

86mins | UK | 2020 | Director: Louise K Wilson | Curated by Shaun Wilson | RETROSPECTIVE

This program shows a range of moving image work made over the last seventeen years by UK artist Louise K Wilson. Her use of film and video is on occasion raw - the project ‘Spadeadam’, for instance, made use of a hand held camera to explore the concrete ruins of a rocket test site. At other times her work embraces more high-end production values - the project ‘Runway’ was filmed over a single day with a camera crew distributed on the ground and in the air, in order to document an extraordinary, choreographed group activity. At the heart of all the work though is an interest in examining our fraught and complex relationship to place, in the form of acoustic fields, scarred surfaces, traces of histories and pluralistic, non-linear modes of temporality. Attention to the relationship between sound and image is prevalent in work by artists David Chapman (UK) and Michal Kindernay (Czech Republic), with whom Wilson has been fortunate to have collaborated. Solo works by these artists keenly explore the natural world, its intensities, its surfaces and the exploitation of its resources.

The Geelong International Biennale (GIB) is a major cultural event in Geelong, Australia which places outstanding cinema, art, theatre, dance, music, and architecture housed in rotational instances from local, national, and international contributions. Its ethos is born from a need for greater cultural innovation in the region to present quirky, risky, vibrant, thought provoking, and enriched projects within the seven nodes of celebration. 2020 will launch cinema as the inaugural event, combining four international film festivals, GIBCON the biennale’s academic conference, public workshops and talks, a drone event, and special screenings.
