Greg Penn
Green light leak

Across sculpture, audio and video, Greg Penn’s new installation Green light leak,
harnesses light and sound to create complex spaces of repetition and rhythm.
Deriving from diverse sources, from monitor calibrations to observations of brutalist architecture,
Green light leak
blurs the representational and the abstract, the everyday and the sublime.

Upstairs Gallery

Peter Alwast
Video Works

A selection of Peter Alwast's video work produced between 2007 and 2012 will be exhibited in the upstairs gallery.
This will include the Melbourne Premiere of Everything, for which Alwast was awarded
the inaugural Premier of Queensland New Media Award. All of the works consider the relationship
between the virtual and the physical, and the translations between painting and digital practices.
Peter Alwast is represented by Gallery 9, Sydney.

Small Screen 1

Lara Thoms and Kate Blackmore
Screen Monument

Screen Monument (2013) is a collaboration between Kate Blackmore and Lara Thoms. The work was initially produced
as part of Thoms’s larger project: Ultimate Vision: Monuments to Us C3West project, commissioned in 2013 by
the Museum of Contemporary Art. Screen Monument, a video work made as part of this project, addresses
the disorientating aspect of shopping centre architecture and the complex interactions of youths
within this highly regulated space. Just as the adolescents portrayed in the work are between
childhood and adulthood, so the architecture occupies a liminal place, between public and private,
ruled by commercial interests, yet also, potentially, the modern agora.

Small Screen 2

Kawita Vatanajyankur
The Carrying Pole

Kawita Vatanajyankur's video performance experiments focus on the female body and everyday objects,
viscerally exploring the relationship of women to both daily domesticity and labour
and to their representation in art history. The Carrying Pole (2015) is part of a new series of
videos, 'Works', which continues this exploration. The Carrying Pole is the inaugural
exhibition in the new, second,'Small Screen', dedicated to single channel works,
located upstairs at Screen Space.
Kawita Vatanajyankur is represented by Stills Gallery, Sydney.

About Screen Space

Screen Space is a not-for-profit independent gallery located in Melbourne that opened in 2010. As the name suggests, the gallery is dedicated to the exhibition of art that uses screen-based technology or incorporates the projected or moving image, or work in any media that engages directly with screen culture. Screen Space has developed its artistic programming, architectural space and organisational structure in order to meet this specific curatorial goal. The gallery has always been rent-free and does not charge for use of the space by artists or curators.

While our permanently installed ‘Small Screen’ monitors allow for a continuous program of single channel works, the gallery is not a screening room, nor a ‘black box’, and our main spaces are particularly focused on installation, multi-channel and works that extend screen-based practice in innovative ways. Having expanded in 2014 to a second gallery space, we now occupy an entire 19th century warehouse in one of Melbourne’s iconic CBD laneways.

The gallery aims to combine local and international, established and emerging artists at the forefront of moving image practice. Previous exhibitions have included Scott Morrison, John Gerrard, Grant Stevens, Megan Cope, Patricia Piccinini, Jordan Crandall, Peter Alwast, Isobel Knowles and Van Sowerwine, Victor Burgin, Amie Siegel, Kelly Richardson, Squaretangle and Nicolas Moulin, among many others.

Screen Space also continues to pursue partnerships with other not-for-profit galleries and organisations, and in the past has collaborated with the Melbourne Festival, Next Wave, Swinburne University, Level ARI, The Australian Thai Artist Interchange, Boxcopy, Channels: Australian Video Art Festival, and Careof (Milan), among others.

The gallery regularly publishes catalogues, and critical discourse is crucial to the space. All catalogues are available in print form or free pdf.

The gallery is co-directed by founders Simone Hine, an artist, and Kyle Weise, a writer.
