In The Telling
Our good friends at ACMI are proud to present In The Telling, an exhibition of new works by New York based Australian artist Ian Burns.
Presented by ACMI’s Gallery 2, In The Telling launches the latest ACMI Commission, a suite of five interconnected kinetic sculptures which generate their own real-time video, titled anywhere and here. Inspired by contemporary consumer culture, Burns’ work often draws on parallels between product consumption and image consumption, with In The Telling specifically exploring the road movie genre, summoning familiar visions of the empty landscape, the wide open road and the car-in-motion, to destabilise powerful cinematic clichés.
Let Ian Burns take you on a visual ride as In The Telling heads to ACMI’s Gallery 2 from Tuesday July 24 2012, going all the way through to next January.
