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.
Really chuffed to be returning home somewhat to Sydney town. I’ll be presenting my Chronology Arts Commission with Monika Brooks on Thursday the 3rd at the Seymour Centre, really great team who have organised the program and I know most of the performers also, great company to be working with again. Then the following night on the 4th a solo AV performance for the guys running the Tin Shed Spots evenings within the Architecture Department at Sydney University.
Looking forward to the return of friendly faces and presenting new work, info for each below!
currently working on a commissioned project with the rather great Monika Brooks (hit the pic above) it’s a collab we’ve wanted to do for ages and has come about in large part to the excellent chronology arts. It’s a full finished AV work for a DVD compilation and performance outcome(s) for the 3rd of October. You can track and contribute to the project, a real treat to be working on for sure.
Queensland Poetry Festival was fun, Lawrence and I made a wonderful racket, I think it went down ok…
Channels Festival is showing small choir in a program, it’s a fantastic event organised via some really great people, if in Melbourne I recommend totally checking it out. They are also running parts of the program with a partner festival, Ikono.
