Matthew Berka
Curated by Julia Powles

25 May 2014–26 May 2014

Kings Artist-Run will present the premier screening of video artist Matthew Berka’s major new work Karkarook, a breathtakingly beautiful, nuanced examination of location, history and politics. Focused around a site of urban-renewal, Karkarook, takes viewers across an immersive encounter with place that challenges our ideas about nature and authenticity. Working with new and innovative approaches to video art, Matthew’s work has developed a keen following over the last three years and Kings Artist-Run is excited to be able to launch his latest work. At 9pm each night there will be a 20-minute curator talk and an accompanying essay will be produced and available on the night.
