S5E1: The Signal and the Noise
In our first episode for Season 5, celebrated Australian artist Louisa Bufardeci tells us about her background as an artist and how her 2012 LED installation Ethnicities to Nations came to be. Bufardeci discusses how the role of data and coding systems have informed her practice. The artwork Ethnicities to Nations is part of the group exhibition, Unspoken Rule which presents work by Australian and International artists Archie Barry, Liam James, Annika Koops, Roee Rosen and Artur Zmijiewski. Curated by Stevie S. Han, the exhibition re-examines the shifting sense of political and cultural agency that characterised identity politics in the 1990s, and which is finding new urgency with artists working today. Unspoken Rule is showing at Contemporary Art Tasmania until 24 February 2019.
Soundtrack, editing and audio mix by Brendan Walls.
