Coalesce ARI presents One Night Stand II at 524 Flinders St on September 21st from 6pm – 10pm.

It is a one night only event that explores Transient Status through performance, interactive, live and durational installations & exhibits. As part of this event Gracie Slonim, Shae Rooke and Mark Walker  have organised a series of video art screenings by Melbourne artists including Matthew Berka, Alica BrysonHaynes, Xanthe Dobbie, Shae Rooke, Andrew Turland and M T Walker that reflect the themes of the event.





Thanks For Asking is a performace project by Barry Laing with artists Martin White, Matthew Berka and the First Impressions Youth Theatre. It will be held at the Epping Memorial Hall this Friday and Saturday. The event presents a hybrid of live video and theatrical performance as part of the City of Whittleseas youth theatre company. White remarks that Its an extraordinary work that arose from us asking the group to identify things they’ve never been asked, but would like to be. The answers (sometimes true, sometimes false, sometimes both) give an amazing insight into the participants lives, thoughts and experiences. The responses have also formed the basis for abstracted physical choreographies. As these forays delve into defining the identity of self, using various physical and technical methods, the night promises to be quite an extraordinary event. Thanks For Asking will meld content and form between preshot interview, stage play, dance and video mashups. Definitely worth the trip up to Epping.

The Melbourne Video Art Society [seeks] to present various art works via screenings and events based on several thematic frameworks that provide a context and overview of the works, exploring the lineage the works may have in a broader video art narrative. Promoting and advocating a video art culture network for emerging video art practitioners, a forum to discuss, receive critical feedback on work, promote exhibitions and share ideas.

The Melbourne Video Art Society and Kings Artist Run would like to acknowledge the support of the City of Melbourne.

44 Lines – Matthew Berka

44 Lines uses video to extensively analyse the architecture of a high density housing Apartment Block. The environment, rather than being mapped chronologically is retraced by the camera through tracking/dolly shots that shape to the physical space. The lines drawn by the camera contradict and parallel each other, generating formal interactions between different zones of the site. Adopting aspects of cinematic language, such devices are used to redirect the viewers spatial and temporal image of the environment in new ways. [from:kingsartistrun.com.au]
