Year: 2012

Ian Burns at ACMI presents an inventive work assembled anywhere and here from everyday domestic objects sourced from retail stores such as K‐Mart and Bunnings. Each sculptural assemblage uses live video and sculpture to interrogate the screen image, its construction and representation of truth.

The newly commissioned work, anywhere and here, draws on consumer culture in terms of image and product consumption. It serves to undermine the power of the virtual image on the technological screen. The absurd, convoluted ways that Burns creates his live videos destabilises the strength of moving image clichés.
