The Australian Centre for Photography is hosting:

A new exhibition of photographic, video and VR works by Shaun Gladwell critically addressing the ambivalence of representing conflict and the historical persistence of imperial structures.

In his latest exhibition, renowned artist Shaun Gladwell continues to interrogate the role of the camera and the artist in the representation of warfare. Assembling existing and new works, the artist meditates on the ambivalence and complexity of depicting conflict and addresses the continuity of Empires across real and mythological times.

One thought on “SHAUN GLADWELL, VIRTUAL IMPERATOR – EDGE OF EMPIRE

  1. My visual poem stemmed from the work of George Ella Lyon in her poem ‘Where I’m from’. I looked closely into the work of Quentin Tarantino, and his use of the ‘Over the shoulder shot’ in the movie “Pulp Fiction”. He used this technique shooting only over the shoulder shots behind the character Marsellus, which raised a lot of questions from the audience asking themselves “Who is this character and why can’t we see him?”. I also used Parallel editing throughout the remoscope to tie the 2 different scenes together and create tension/anticipation within the video. This was a technique used heavily in Christopher Nolan’s movie “Inception”.
