Recently screened at the VPB program of the 77th Venice Film Festival, 'Winter Orbit' is a slow cinema monument to the lockdown of COVID-19 from Australian artist Shaun Wilson who has positioned models into poses located in German medieval paintings from the Black Plague era to recontextualise new spaces both in terms of a ‘memory’ of the former and invite questions as to the meta-validity of memory versus the post- sustainability of simulacra.

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.
