Shaun Gladwell

Just went to see Shaun Gladwell's exhibition at ACMI - loved it to pieces, the common thread which tied all the works together was really simple and consistent - basically a recurring theme of reflection and duality, parallels and pairs etc. Though his works are standalone brilliant, the show also made me aware of how important presentation is in video art: in presenting his dual videos in pairs, one on each wall facing each other, the viewer had to choose which to look at, and couldn't view them both side by side, which was interesting in inviting audience participation on some level, though also keeping control.
