SAWTOOTH x Blindside

Gianna Mazzeo, The Huxleys, Amy Dellar

1 Aug–9 Sep 2018

The video works that make up this compilation were chosen on the basis of their uneasy, outlandish, and dreamlike characteristics. Dellar’s Miss Cancer and Mazzeo’s Miss Pisces appear to encapsulate notions of the surreal, paying homage to the likes of David Lynch and Brian De Palma. The Huxley’s Dark Side of the Rainbow exposes and bombards the viewer with a succession of unpredictable, nonsensical imagery. The overall composition of the three works reflect the structure of the subconscious as ‘something’ we view without our control and cannot fully comprehend.

All videos in this project were displayed in the Portal Space at Sawtooth ARI in Launceston, Tasmania in the last 12 months.

PLAY (2014-2019) was a continuously programmed online gallery that presented single channel video art by national and international artists to audiences throughout Australia and the world.

This program takes place on the land of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. We recognise that sovereignty was never ceded - this land is stolen land. We pay respects to Wurundjeri Elders, past, present and emerging, to the Elders from other communities and to any other Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islanders who might encounter or participate in the program.
