20th October – 4th November
ANAMNESIS unveils a cinematic experience that characterises the recollection of esoteric concepts in which the soul may recall from previous existences/realities. Aligned with Platonic thought, retrocognition catalyses through an internal alchemy made external, where a certain level of horror and/or pleasure results by actualising the potential to resurrect this connatural knowledge. The visual phenomena that manifest through the work become a multidimensional and otherworldly presentation of Being; a visceral embodiment of the act of remembrance, which has the potential to permeate a sensorial encounter with the sublime.
Multidisciplinary visual artist, Elise Bonato (Adelaide, AUS), is a practitioner of the visual-aural arcane. Her experimental practice investigates contemporary notions of the sublime and mysticism through a synthesis of moving image, performance, installation, drawing and painting. She has recently exhibited SUPERNAL, Sawtooth ARI; ćreature of the elēgiac, FELTspace; Arcane Beckoning, The Mill Adelaide in Australia and in the USA (Interstitial Theatre, NARS Foundation). This project has been generously supported by the Helpmann Academy.
