UNTITLED (WORK IN TRANSIENCE), 2022
HD Video, colour, silent, 9’20’’
PERFORMED, FILMED AND EDITED BY DEVIKA BILIMORIA
This work in transience/work in progress was presented as a large scale projection in ARTICUALTIONS curated by Priya Namana from the Centre For Projection Art in 2022, 11-12 March.
As part of Melbourne Fashion Festival's Independent Program, Centre for Projection Art are activating the public spaces around Collingwood Yards, showcasing video works by artists Amrita Hepi, Zoë Bastin and Devika Billimoria. Articulating notions of place, identity, archive and gesture held by the body, these lens-based works express their intentions through the language of movement and gesture.
To frame the presentation of these projection works was a panel in conversation unpacking the ideas, motivations and approaches within the shared language of their practices with Scotty So, Eugenia Lim and Jody Haines.
ARTICULATIONS II - Bodies carve out space, adapt to environmental conditions, and hold deep relational connections to landscape, cultural experiences and lived histories. Embodying, learning, and feeling, the body communicates these relations through perpetual movement and gesture. This talk will engage with the language and connections that a body as a medium forms and expresses through.
