WINTER ORBIT

1h | Australia | 2020 | Artist: Shaun Wilson | Rating: G

Presented by Bakers Road Entertainment and MARS Gallery

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, writer Pearl Wilson, and composer Darrin Verhagen aka Sinjuku Thief. Wilson 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.

Winter Orbit is the forth instalment from the contemporary art series The 51 Paintings Suite filmed in Australia, Germany and England.

The G Biennale (GB) is a major cultural event which places outstanding and significant 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 from hybrid online and physical events through to present quirky, risky, vibrant, thought-provoking, and enriched projects within the seven nodes of celebration.
