Fans of film and art are in for a treat at a free exhibition showcasing the work of Australian video artist Shaun Gladwell.

Travellers who have arrived on flights to Melbourne have until August to explore Gladwell’s Stereo Sequences, which is said to be groundbreaking work.

Showing at the Australian Centre for Moving Image, Federation Square, Gladwell’s work covers high art and street culture.

The artist uses a myriad of film techniques to explore the power of moving image, from long pans capturing the skills of skateboarders and ballerinas to slow motion, which reduces everything to a pace unusual in film.

Gladwell has defined his work as “performative landscapes”, which he has defined as being about an “isolated figure moving and struggling through the panoramas of nature – urban and real – in a possible engagement with the sublime”.

Skating figures a lot in his work as he was a keen skateboarder until an injury put an end to his professional ambitions.
