Amos Gebhardt brings a cinematic force to large-scale, moving image installations and photography, collaborating with performers, choreographers and musicians including Melanie Lane, Oren Ambarchi, Bhenji Ra, Eric Avery, and Lawrence English.
Centred on themes of identity, queerness, resistance and entanglement, this extensive series of Gebhardt’s works form a labyrinth of film and photographs that unify the artist’s practice in a bold new way.
This will be the Melbourne premiere of the major three-channel video work, Small acts of resistance.
The exhibition also features Evanescence – a 20 metre video installation where 40 performers merge with materials of the earth in endless cycles, There are no others – a portrait of gender diverse people rising into the firmament, and Lovers – a black and white ode to the extraordinary language between horses during mating season.
Please note, Evanescence is showing in the Main Performance Space, Level 1, until 06 March 2021.
