Moving portraits by Robert Wilson
Next Occurrence : 09 Jul 2022
Archie 100 will be complemented by an Australian exclusive – Moving portraits by Robert Wilson, an assemblage of Wilson's extraordinary video portraits – likenesses ranging from celebrities to poets, from authors to dancers and ordinary people. The portraits, shot in high-definition video, are mounted vertically on large plasma monitors and complemented by AGSA’s esteemed European collection.
Wilson has collaborated with many of the most celebrated performers of our time including Lady Gaga, Brad Pitt, Isabella Rossellini, Robert Downey Jr and Winona Ryder to create stunning yet imperceptibly slow-moving tableaux. By incorporating a multitude of creative elements – lighting, costume, make up, choreography, gesture, text, voice, set design, and narrative – the video portraits act as a complete synthesis of all the media in the realm of Wilson’s imaginative art making.
