The exhibition will feature the premiere of new, site-specific work, commissioned by the Adelaide Film Festival Investment Fund and the Samstag Museum of Art.

Daniel Crooks is a Samstag Museum of Art, University of South Australia and 2013 Adelaide Film Festival exhibition, generously supported by Arts SA.

Employing a complex range of techniques to investigate new ways of representing time and space, in Crook’s skilful hands the screen becomes a malleable, fluid space, his alchemic process creating poetic and mesmerizing interpretations of the everyday world. The resulting moving images invite long contemplation and repeated viewing, luring the spectator into sharing what seems a deceptively familiar world, albeit one seen from a new vantage point.

Opening hours
Tuesday to Friday 11.00am – 5.00pm
Saturday 2.00pm – 5.00pm
