The boom of video art can be traced directly to the emergence of the digital camera and as a consequence an immediate democratisation of filmmaking. It suddenly became possible for any budding filmmaker to give vent to his creativity without any of the enormous expenses traditionally associated with the medium; the only thing needed was a good quality video camera and a film could virtually be made. Furthermore, the explosion of short films and possibility of working within any time frame resulted in a totally new and extremely concise way for people to express themselves.
Shaun Gladwell’s surfing video art inspired by Wagner and the golden era of the 1970s
Born in 1972, Gladwell harks back to this romantic, even utopian age of the Australian beach in his upcoming exhibition titled Morning of the Earth - named after a surf film from that sun-kissed decade.
In video images on the gallery walls, the swell rolls in slow motion as a graceful surfer floats and watches the horizon. Back on the beach this elemental man peels his wetsuit down, stretching his limbs as spray pounds against the rocks.
Gladwell was originally commissioned to create a video work to accompany a live concert of Wagner’s The Flying Dutchman for the Rotterdam Philharmonic. For Melbourne, a city that can never get enough Wagner, he’s re-edited the video into separate frames representing the opera’s story.
