DAVID NOONAN: A DARK AND QUIET PLACE
23.03.2018 – 28.04.2018

A Dark and Quiet Place is David Noonan’s first filmic work since the early 2000s, and Gertrude is thrilled to be the context for its Australian premiere. Regarded as one of Australia’s most internationally respected artists, Noonan returns to the medium of film in a way entirely different to his previous video works, taking cue and evolving out of his work in collage, image manipulation and screen printing of the past decade and a half. Retaining a basis in theatre and utilising archival imagery, the densely layered film evolves over time in manner more associative of a montage and collusion of representation and abstraction.

SANGEETA SANDRASEGAR: IT'S LIKE THAT
23.03.2018 – 28.04.2018

It’ Like That is a consideration on the flexibility and relationships between the Copy, Allegory Translation, Time, Space and Thought. Dispelling the notion that the copy is not an original, 'an artefact without archeology' this new project follows the way in which the lives and afterlives of the ‘original’ emerges, evolves and mutates through time and space. The project tracks the artistic process through a mediation on thought and memory, taking the extracted pages of a diary and year planner as the material basis upon which time itself is both planned, allocated and spent. Through their punctuation, these pages become both a testament of the passing of time and reflect the passing of light through them as objects, simultaneously recording and erasing transcripts of thought.
