One-off Performance at Sydney. 10 Women on Horseback

Pythagoras, Parxiteles, Anthemius… Performance by Lauren Brincat | Wed 12 Jun, 1pm

Lauren Brincat’s performance is titled after the roll call of great male artists and thinkers that adorn the Gallery’s 19th century facade. Ten women on horseback will ride through the streets of Sydney to their final destination in front of the bronze statues of men on horseback guarding the Art Gallery of NSW, in a symbolic stand-off with the dominant male symbols. Brincat’s new work relates to her 2012 performance Mexican Standoff, a video of which can be seen in the exhibition.

Tree of Knowledge performance by Christian Thompson | Wed 12 Jun, 7pm

Thompson’s performance is a surreal autobiographical work that traverses time and space, from his childhood in the Queensland outback, his life in the city, past loves and aspirations. This solo performance is a window into the life and dreams of a young Australian artist finding his place in Europe. Combining music, audio visual and dance into a series of performed scenarios Thompson takes us on a journey through his past and allows us to peer into his future. Tree of Knowledge was produced as Thompson’s final proof for his Master of Theatre from Dasarts (The Amsterdam School of Arts) in 2010. Thompson was mentored by renowned Bulgarian born – Vienna based performance artist and theatre maker Ivo Dimchev.

The exhibition Anne Landa Award for video & new media arts is on show at the Art Gallery of NSW until 28 July 2013. The seven participating artists are eligible for the acquisitive award of $25,000. This year’s recipient will be announced 20 June 2013.
