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.
a couple of small installs for two one-night only affairs. the boys from a colourful storm asked me to create something for the deep dark mercat as they host silent servant.
first summer of living melbourne proper has been great and now 2013 is really kicking into gear. working on a new work for a group show at Beam in a couple of months and also some collaborative projects i’ll detail soon enough. I recently spent some chats and emails with the lovely and terrific Jessie Scott. Jessie runs the excellent Tape Projects and contacted me towards her ongoing series Mediums at her PictureSkew website, worth a bookmark for sure, it’s rather prolific and interesting reads always.
more to come…
