Amos Gebhardt for Adelaide Studios Artist Residency (17 December)December 17 2018
Award winning filmmaker, acclaimed for large scale, multi-screen video installations, Amos Gebhardt was today announced as the recipient of the inaugural Adelaide Studios Artist Residency. Gebhardt takes up the Residency in 2019 with the aim to create a sensorial moving image experience on the theme of survival, using audio diaries, dance, slow motion and underwater photography, to be presented on large-scale screens.
The Artist Residency is presented by the South Australian Film Corporation and Adelaide Studios in partnership with SALA (South Australian Living Artists) Festival, and the Anne & Gordon Samstag Museum of Art, with funding from Arts South Australia and Unitcare Services. The work will premiere at Adelaide Studios during SALA Festival 2019, and from 2020, the exhibiting partner will be the Anne & Gordon Samstag Museum of Art.
Amos Gebhardt said “Artist residencies allow space for creative discovery and realisation over an extended period of time, providing a rare opportunity to deepen artistic practice. The Adelaide Studios Artist Residency will provide a unique opportunity to work amongst world-class facilities and filmmaking colleagues. The SAFC will be the ideal base to conduct research and development, production and post, with access to the studios, post facilities and mixing theatres. The nexus between art and moving image is an often under-resourced area of production so I am thrilled to seize this opportunity to expand my practice and produce genre-defying moving image work made in South Australia to export to the world.”
Gebhardt will be welcomed into the central hub of screen practitioners based at Adelaide Studios, provided with $50,000 cash, a creative workspace and access to Adelaide Studios’ state-of-the-art studios, grading and sound post facilities to make art of the moving image.
