Drawing from a background in dance, Wilson’s work negotiates movement as language – the relationship between stillness and movement is constantly tested in her photography, video, sound and performance works. Wilson completed a PhD in 2009 in Fine Arts at Monash University and has shown internationally and nationally. Wilson has undertaken residencies including Banff Canada, Barcelona Spain, Italy and the UK. Her videos has been included in Singapore Biennal (Gravity); the Athens International Film Festival and the Rotterdam Film Festival. She has recently been selected as finalist for the Scottish Bank Emerging Art Award, the Gold Coast Photography Prize and the Blake Prize.
The exhibition explores the creative intersections between art and performance in contemporary Australian art. Starting with performance art of the 1970s, this exhibition shows how music and dance, staged photography and film, theatricality and the spectacle of performance infuse vitality into contemporary Australian art.
