Scott Morrison is a sound and video artist based in Sydney, Australia. His practice encompasses live performance, gallery installation and festival screenings that have focused towards the synergistic properties of the moving image. He has had numerous solo and group exhibitions nation-wide and his audiovisual works have screened extensively nationally and abroad. His primary research and output has fallen under the title of “ballad(s) for quiet horizons”. This body of work details and further develops the artist’s appreciation of Australia’s rural landscape. It is an exploration and abstraction of natural occurrence, rhythmic meditations of place and how familiar experience(s) can be re-interpreted, re-imagined and rendered anew.
Doing a short live set for the Project Pixel event as part of the Melbourne Fringe Festival on Saturday the 27th at Goodtime Studios. I’ve finished some new edits for my dear friend April Surgent for her new exhibition based on her recent expedition to the Antarctic. I’ll post some video once the show opens in a couple of weeks. Another install for the a colourful storm crew at the Mercat and a project in early December for the pop-up MPavilion at the NGV. Great, fun projects to round out a busy 2014.
