Dominic Redfern presents two major new video works at PICA; Stonewall and Mythos. Drawing on traditions of both video and performance art, Redfern uses self-portraiture, fiction and documentary to explore the intersection of site, screen and identity. Shot in 2008 for a solo exhibition at the Centre d’ Art Marnay in rural France, Stonewall extends Redfern’s investigation of the dynamics of monologue and performance in a selected environment.
For PICA, Stonewall will be presented in an expanded format and accompanied by Mythos, a second multi-screen installation that unifies his filmed landscape studies spanning three years. Dominic Redfern’s work has been exhibited and screened nationally and internationally, including in the UK, USA, Germany, Korea, Japan, Thailand and Finland. He is a Senior Lecturer in Video Art and the Studio Coordinator of Media Arts at RMIT, Melbourne.
