2017 FRINGE WINNER BEST EMERGING ARTIST
Congratltions Genevieve Grieves
Lament - 3-channelvideoinstallation
This work was inspired by a point in the West Australian landscape I was introduced to by my friend and sister, Dianne Jones. This par cular site is in Dianne’s Country. A place she and her family are connected to inherently; the place of their Ancestors. But with the coming of the Europeans, Country changed and new experiences and memories were etched into the landscape. In this case, a tragedy unfolded that has waited to be explored.
“Get the picture” part of this years Melbourne's Fringe Festival, an exploration of representation and depiction within the realms of cinema, photography and new media.
“Get the picture” references historical powers of representation and storytelling as a legacy of resistance and resilience. Over time we have seen how a formerly powerless people have embraced still and moving image media to challenge and change the dynamics of their own depiction. The exhibition explores how cinematography and new media sit with each other today to empower self-representation and self-expression.
