Experimenta Screengrab at Fed Square

PRLog - Dec. 6, 2011 - Experimenta are excited to announce the launch of Experimenta Screengrab. Curated exclusively for Fed Square, the first Experimenta Screengrab is screening throughout December 2011 and presents a programme of recent works by three Australian artists: Jess MacNeil, Kate Murphy and Emile Zile, artists who share a unique dialogue and engagement with the world around them.

Experimenta Screengrab is contemplative and reflective, fun and irreverent, intimate and optimistic, acknowledging the geographic, conceptual and temporal context of Fed Square. A second programme of single channel screen works will be announced for screening in January 2012.

Screengrab begins Dec 5th, screening from 6.30 to until 7.30pm on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday of this week with a repeat screening at 10.30pm on the same nights. For updates or screening times for next week, check the Fed Square website: http://www.fedsquare.com/events/fedtv/.

Audiences will be enchanted by MacNeil’s Revolution, a 360 degree navigation around Trafalgar Square in London and a meditative consideration of the human presence in public space and the traces we leave behind. Emile Zile’s Five production company logos’ in 3D is an irreverent single channel video work in which the artist performs the signature logo’s of five production companies in synch with an original soundtrack. The implicit critique of the proliferation of image production and consumption in this work is brought alive in this context and is a look at the generation of “content” for mass audiences. Kate Murphy’s work Count me in draws us in to a strange kind of intimacy with young performers at an end of year concert. By placing an observational camera just offstage, we witness the giddy breathlessness and nervous anticipation of these “accidental” performers as they wait in the wings. The work is an insightful and poignant celebration.

Experimenta is where creativity and technology collide. Since 1986, Experimenta has been dedicated to making contemporary media art accessible to the public. With three major objectives: commissioning, exhibiting and touring the best of contemporary media art, Experimenta creates engaging media art experiences for audiences of all ages and backgrounds. These three objectives unite in the realisation of the 5th International Biennial of Media Art, launching in Melbourne in September 2012.
