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.
2017 was probably biggest project to date.. 2018 working on new slow form works to start – landscapes and extended views out to particular vantages of locations visited. The wonder of the gaze, of looking out, beyond and anew.
Always nice to be working with Peter Knight and the great team at the AAO. Working an earlier treatment into a pretty dazzling full concert experience of Peter’s Diomira composition – based and inspired from the gorgeous Invisible Cities.
This festival in Marseille was one of the first to present my work in an international context back in 2004 and I’ve been consistently presenting with them since. I’m sure one day I will be able to attend and share a hello with Claude and his wonderful festival. Thanks again and congrats to another terrific edition Team P’Silo.
