'Love. Lament. Loss.' brings together the work of three artists who have explored these states in their complexity and intensity. Leslie Oliver asks students to recount a time they fell in love, offering stories of loves-lived and loves-lost. Todd Fuller's films explore the strength required to release a burden or a joy, and Nicole Welch stimulates deliberation through a use of loaded symbols, conceptually considering the effect of imperialistic ideology on the Australian landscape.
Oliver's empathetic documentary-style approach is contrasted with the mesmerising time-lapse technique employed by Welch. Fuller's hand-drawn animations offer a further divergent style of moving image artwork, conveying the varied ways in which the medium of video is being used by artists to create thoughtful and captivating narratives.
