Marieka Walsh
shadow. fright.

  18 October - 11 November 2012

Marieka Walsh's work explores ideas of disconnection and disturbances within the natural environment. Thematically her art, film-making and animation work questions the role of both control and instinct in relation to fear. Walsh's practice has lead her to work in various mediums including sand and hand painted animation, film manipulation and video.

By offering disarming anxious laden insights into animal instincts and the wilderness, shadow. fright. challenges the idea of a world where we impart control. The isolation of the bush delivers a presence to routine tasks and assumed order creating an awareness of action, impact and desire. Within these scenes we find ourselves inside a darker narrative, forced to either associate with an instinct or an order, though neither are shown as a comfortable match.

Walsh is a previous winner of the Marrickville Contemporary Art Prize in 2009 and her most recent animation, The Hunter, has been nominated for a 2013 AACTA (AFI) award.
