Ash Keating’s new video Continuum will be shown continuously from 7pm to 7am at the Kaleide Theatre, as part of RMIT Gallery’s White Night Melbourne event.
Ash Keating’s new video artwork Continuum explores the concept of time as an endless experience.
The work was filmed at the lunette formations of Lake Mungo north east of Mildura, site of the oldest human remains found in Australia, and in Carwarp, a town just south of Mildura, where a 40 dish photovoltaic solar panel installation takes full advantage of the area’s bountiful sunlight.
Through considered and continuous motion of a single human figure, a poetic tension is created between the material force of the erosion of the ancient landscape and the immaterial force of the production of solar energy.
Presented by RMIT Gallery as part of White Night Melbourne 2014, Continuum will be shown on continuous loop from 7pm in the RMIT Kaleide Theatre in Swanston Street, offering audiences a meditative experience of time and place.
Continuum was commissioned for Mildura Palimpsest Biennale #9, October 2013.
Ash Keating is represented by Fehily Contemporary.
Since 2004 Ash Keating has exhibited extensively and undertaken a diverse range of art projects in the public realm both around Australia and internationally.
