Econasia: maritime

M T Walker

Middle Gallery

Opening

Econasia: Maritime is represented in 2 videos & associated photographic works by one of Melbourne’s most promising new video artists. The Econasia series delves into political philosophies associated with the rise of China (Irredentist) and the staunchness of Japanese self-determination (Affirm). The aim of the series is to offer compelling visual aesthetics and an aurally confronting experience; whilst also prompting a politically-oriented appreciation by the discerning public. The subjective nature of the video works relate to modernist socio-political philosophies and are cushioned by narrated texts. Irredentist employs text from Albert Camus’ The Plague, whilst Affirm incorporates a Stamford University published political science text.
