Adrift in the Void stems from video footage recorded by a miniature camera hidden inside sunglasses, developed during a residency at Casa Tres Patios, Medellín, Colombia. The footage was filmed in public spaces without people’s knowledge or consent, then transformed into fiction through narrative voice-over. The narration adapts quotes from Haruki Murakami, Philip K. Dick and Paul Auster in combination with writing by the artist. Unsuspecting people become actors and “reality” becomes “fiction” through imagining small episodes in people’s day-to-day life.
SEVENTH acknowledges the traditional owners of the country where we work, the Wurundjeri and neighbours Boonwurrung people, and their continuing connection to land, sea and community. SEVENTH pays our respects to their Elders both past and present.
