Five Points of a Circle: experimental films by Bob Georgeson

Thursday January 17 - 3 February 2019
M16 Artspace, 21 Blaxland Crescent, Griffith, ACT
Bob Georgeson presents a series of films that explore themes of memory, loneliness, alienation, mystery and disquiet. The films also reflect his 5 primary areas of exploration: Socio-political commentary, societal collapse and disintegration, chance encounters and collaboration, seeking the marvellous in the mundane and the impacts of new technologies on human interactions.

Bob Georgeson has remained committed to the dada protest and surrealist path since meeting the Czech born Australian surrealist Dusan Marek in Adelaide in 1970. Originally slicing through the eyeball of the intersection of reality and desire with a scalpel in a series of photomontages based on the symbiotic relationship between eroticism and religion, he has more recently turned to the subject of societal collapse and disintegration.
Tired of exhibiting in the white cube he turned to video art in 2012 and began working on collaborative online projects in the Creative Commons. He has since published over 90 experimental films and continues to work with musicians, artists and performers around the world from his home in a remote corner of South Eastern Australia.
