French video artist Sylvie Blocher creates portrait studies of individuals or groups within society. Through these works, or ‘Living Pictures’, she explores communal issues as well as personal themes, asking questions to which her subjects respond with often surprising candor. Presented across single or multiple screens, these artworks envelop you as they address the complexities of modern urban life.

Sylvie Blocher: What Is Missing? is presented concurrently at Penrith Regional Gallery & Lewers Bequest, featuring work by Campement Urbain, a visionary Paris-based collective headed by Blocher and architect/urban planner François Daune, for the city of Penrith, and the Penrith Panthers.

Sylvie Blocher: What is Missing? is supported by Culturesfrance. Additional support is provided by The French Embassy in Australia.
