MELBOURNE.- The Australian Centre for the Moving Image today launched the world premiere of a new video installation by critically acclaimed artist, David Rosetzky. Co-commissioned by ACMI and Carriageworks in Sydney, David Rosetzky: Gaps is a free exhibition in Gallery 2 until Sunday 8 February 2015.

David Rosetzky is a Melbourne artist who works across a range of media, often in collaboration with other creative practitioners. Over the last twenty years his work has carved out a unique space at the intersection of portraiture and performance, in an ongoing investigation into the nature of contemporary identity. His meticulously crafted videos feature people describing and restaging aspects of themselves and their relationships to each other and the world, using texts based on conversations recorded with the artist.

Gaps is a nuanced survey of personal identity and the relationship – or ‘gaps’ – between self and other through speech, movement and dance. Rosetzky’s collaborators on Gaps include award winning choreographer and performer Stephanie Lake, who also choreographed How to Feel (2011), co-writer Anna Zagala, and performers Jessie Oshodi, Lee Serle, Rani Pramesti and Dimitri Baveas. Long time collaborator David Franzke provides original music and sound design.

Reflecting on the exhibition, Rosetzky said: “Drawing from the disciplines of dance, theatre and screen culture, I made Gaps with an experimental mind-set and highly collaborative approach – working together with a wonderful team of very generous and talented artists. G aps provided the opportunity for me to present the idea of identity as both relative and fragmented, and explore self-other relations as a series of ongoing negotiations with ever-shifting boundaries.”

ACMI Director and CEO, Tony Sweeney is delighted that ACMI is able to support the creative vision of a local artist, who continues to amass international recognition for his work: “ Gaps is a testament to Rosetzky’s prominence on the video art scene. His new work, which is at once highly stylised and effortlessly naturalistic, beautifully interchanges between the interior and exterior worlds that we each inhabit.”
