Two lecture performances. Coinciding with Trilogies exhibition, the exhibiting artists will present their internationally renowned 60 minute lecture performances, a medium popular since the 1960s that blurs the boundaries between performance art and pedagogy.

The Girl Who Never Was (2013) by Erik Bünger is the final in a trilogy of works that takes us on a winding trip through history. A history where a voice echoes forwards and backwards through time, retroactively changing history and changing the present from the vantage point of the past.

The Carousel (2011) traces an alternative history of film as a burial crypt where we collectively commune with the dead. Within this is a live video essay narration, used to navigate an eclectic matrix of film samples, producing a multi-channel video essay where it makes perfect sense to conjoin media theory, mysticism, deconstruction, kung-fu, vintage sci-fi, zombie flicks and techno horror.

Time: 7.30pm (approximate running time: 120 minutes with a 20 minute interval between lecture performances)

Ticket Info: All tickets $15

An Auslan interpreter will be provided for this lecture performance
