Curated by Steven Ball and Professor Catherine Elwes (Camberwell) Figuring Landscapes is a remarkable collection of moving image works that has grown from the background of the political and cultural history that links the UK and Australia.
Presented internationally as a series of screening programmes, the works in Figuring Landscapes addressed questions of ecological survival, post-industrialism, gender, the touristic gaze, and uniquely in Australia, the social, political and cultural status of Indigenous people in a post-colonial society.
Figuring Landscapes includes 55 works from Australia and the UK premiered at ArtSway in the New Forest in November 2008, the tour launched at Tate Modern, London in February 2009 and continued throughout the UK, Ireland and Australia during 2009 – 2010.
The Figuring Landscapes programme and catalogue are in the British Artists’ Film & Video Study Collection.
