Daniel Crooks

10 October – 20 December 2013

The Samstag Museum of Art and the Adelaide Film Festival continue their productive, ongoing cultural collaboration in 2013, presenting Australia’s first survey of significant work by the internationally acclaimed, New Zealand-born and now Melbourne-based artist, Daniel Crooks.

Filling all parts of the University of South Australia’s spacious Samstag Museum, the exhibition will focus on the complex and beautiful digital moving-image work, that Crooks has created through his ongoing Time Slice project, which began in 1999.

Employing a complex range of techniques to investigate new ways of representing time and space, in Crook’s skilful hands the screen becomes a malleable, fluid space, his alchemic process creating poetic and mesmerizing interpretations of the everyday world. The resulting moving images invite long contemplation and repeated viewing, luring the spectator into sharing what seems a deceptively familiar world, albeit one seen from a new vantage point.
