Ah, classic LOLs from the guy inflating his girlfriend’s underpants with a hairdryer, although I can’t see that relationship lasting “forever” when she wakes up with third degree burns on her bum cheeks. No wonder he looks so guilty. To find out what happens you’ll need to visit the MONA Biennale of Moving Images, Hobart 2015 and watch the rest of Gabriel Abrantes’s film Freud Und Friends; he has been selected as one of the most interesting moving image artists under 40, along with 19 others.
London’s Serpentine Gallery co-director Hans Ulrich Obrist is among the panel of experts who have delved in to the now-omnipresent world of moving image art, and the exhibition deals in output of all types, from the cinematic through lo-fi to the purely conceptual, and from single screen to complex installation. The show comes at a time when engagement with video has never been higher, as more of the world gains access to recording technology through smartphones and improved broadband infrastructure encourages the online experience to be ever more animated. Tasmania’s epic MONA (Museum of Old and New Art) is hosting until 6 July.
