John Gerrard / Roderick Sprigg
ART:CITY | Wesfarmers Arts

Re-visioning the rural landscape and our experience and perception of it is central to these two captivating solo exhibitions at PICA.

Ireland's John Gerrard has fast gained international recognition for his innovative work with slow-moving animated images of stark landscapes, which he describes as 'virtual sculptures'. In his first major show in Australia, Gerrard takes over the Central Galleries with a vast Realtime 3D projection and numerous screen objects. In the Westend Gallery, Australia's Roderick Sprigg draws upon his farming upbringing and presents thought-provoking new films, sculptures and performances that contemplate agricultural resourcefulness and land usage.
