Presented by Kings ARI (Vic) and Clarence arts and Events as part of the Hobiennale 2017 Festival: Elapse draws on the longstanding community presence of KINGS Artist Run initiative, bringing together emerging and established Melbourne artists to activate the spaces of the Schoolhouse Gallery. Multi-disciplinary perspectives are presented alongside a selection of moving image works, continuing KINGS’ ongoing association with video and new media. Through image, sound and material interventions the artists interact closely with the site as a basis for experimentation. Elapse constructs an immersive environment within the gallery, offering the viewer a context to explore, interpret and participate in the mediation of new social and cultural meanings.
