A “visual haiku” depicting the connection between the human spirit and the weather; a glass jar installation inspired by the story of Aboriginal resistance fighter Pemulwuy; and a video art piece examining the gentrification of Fitzroy’s Gertrude Street and surrounds.
The 10-day festival, this year with the theme ”transience”, has been growing year-on-year since its inception. Its 50 artists will exhibit at more than 40 places along Gertrude Street, among them Lauren Dunn whose piece is about the area’s gentrification.
Dunn’s five-minute clip, which will run on a loop, is a combination of slow and fast scenes made from footage she shot on the streets of Fitzroy and Collingwood using her mobile phone. These include images of the neon sign advertising the development of the former Patterson Emporium building on Smith Street, and of nearby gourmet fast-food joint Huxtaburger.
I was asked to write about the present and future of “artists’ cinema” and “moving-image art.” This language conflates two traditions that I still have a stake in separating: experimental film and (gallery/museum) video art.
