AGSA Screen Wavelength presents moving image works of art from the Art Gallery of South Australia’s time-based media collection. Wavelength draws on past and contemporary approaches to time-based media, sharing stories from across our world that are connected through the theme of water.

The Art Gallery of South Australia's focused yet significant collection of moving image works by Australian and international artists illustrates this medium’s dynamism and the diverse nature of acquisitions within the AGSA’s collection.

Works of art by Betty Nungarrayi Conway, Aki Imomata, Mark Patterson, Joan Ross, Tim Silver, Gabriella Smart, Ida Sophia, Gerry Wedd and Kumantjayi (Joanne) Napangardi Wheeler have been selected from the AGSA collection to tour regionally in South Australia through the generosity of Metal Manufactures Pty Ltd, presented in partnership with Country Arts SA.

Presented in partnership with Country Arts SA and with generous support received from Principal Donor Metal Manufactures Pty Ltd.

I have lived and surfed on the Fleurieu Peninsula for more than fifty years. For much of my life I have hung around the edge where the water meets the land, and human-made detritus is ever more visible. My concept for WAVE was to subvert the familiar and benign medium of blue and white porcelain to tease out a narrative of climate destruction, plunging viewers into a wondrous world that retains the lustrous look of glaze and the malleable tension of clay. As someone who normally works in 2D and 3D, WAVE opens up new visual and narrative possibilities for my practice. It is certainly the most collaborative project I have been involved with where each moment is a liaison between myself, composer Gabriella Smart, producer Mark Patterson and Carlo and Anton Andreacchio from Jumpgate.
