True Self: David Rosetzky Selected Works
Centre for Contemporary Photography presents True Self: David Rosetzky Selected Works—the first major survey of leading Australian artist David Rosetzky.
One of Australia's finest video artists, David Rosetzky creates intensely beautiful lens-based works exploring identity, subjectivity and relationships. Increasingly, he collaborates with professionals from the fields of theatre, dance, film and sound. Drawing on fifteen years of practice True Self: David Rosetzky Selected Works presents early portrait and longer duration videos, photographs, photo-collages and sculptures, revealing telling relationships between these aspects of his practice. It includes a major new video work Half Brother 2013, commissioned by CCP with support from Irene Sutton. The exhibition not only allows us to see the consistency of Rosetzky's vision, but to engage with a trajectory in his video that moves from lo-fi, singular portraits that borrow advertising's aura, through to cinematic, long-duration work.
Curated by Naomi Cass, Director and Kyla McFarlane, Associate Curator at the Centre for Contemporary Photography, Melbourne.
The exhibition will be toured by NETS Victoria to venues across Australia from 2013 to 2015.
In a Lonely Place
In a Lonely Place presents selections from three major series by Gregory Crewdson, Fireflies (1996), Beneath the Roses (2003-2008), Sanctuary (2010) and, presented for the first time, the video Field Notes (2009). The exhibition title comes from Nicholas Ray's 1950s film noir of the same name, one of many films that inspired Crewdson. In a Lonely Place is evocative of an underlying mood-a quiet feeling of alienation and loneliness that links the three series selected by curators Estelle Af Malmborg, Jens Erdman Rasmussen and Felix Hoffmann. In a Lonely Place presents the first comprehensive exhibition of Crewdson's work in Australia.
