Daniel von Sturmer: Set Pieceexhibition • 05 Sep 2009 – 31 Oct 2009
Site Gallery presents the first UK solo show by New Zealand-born, Melbourne-based artist Daniel von Sturmer. The ambitious installation of new video works will be presented within a temporary architecture in the gallery created especially for the exhibition. This work will follow through strategies used when the artist represented Australia in the Venice Biennale 2007.
Daniel von Sturmer:
Daniel von Sturmer’s work involves various media to explore questions about the nature of perception, the embodiment of time and how context and framing shape the meaning and experience of an artwork. They reveal video’s inherent ability to render space and time as malleable and elastic provoking questions about our conception of both. When presented in a gallery these works are often projected as short video loops in installations involving multiple screens, sculptural objects and architecturally scaled constructions.
