Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre is proud to host
Sense of Place
A dLux MediaArts exhibition toured by Museums and Galleries NSW
Sense of Place is a screening program of contemporary Australian video art, showcasing the work of eight artists united by their investigation of cultural identity and the evolving concept of ‘Australian-ness’.
Positioning the artists themselves as protagonists, characters or as self portraits, the works employ digital video not only as a documentary medium but as a tool to share stories, create and communicate histories with the wider community through the exploration of cultural propriety and social paradigms.
Featuring Kate Murphy, Justin Shoulder, Sarah Goffman, John A Douglas, Brendan Lee, Laith McGregor, Darren Sylvester, and Liam Benson, the exhibition reveals how contemporary Australian artists reflect their experiences and sensibilities in unique and fascinating ways through screen based mediums.
