About

TRUE SELF: DAVID ROSETZKY SELECTED WORKS

Curated by Naomi Cass, Director, and Kyla McFarlane, Associate Curator at the Centre for Contemporary Photography, Melbourne

A Centre for Contemporary Photography and NETS Victoria touring exhibition 

One of Australia’s finest artists, David Rosetzky creates intensely beautiful lens-based works exploring identity, subjectivity and relationships. Increasingly, he collaborates with professionals from the fields of theatre, dance, film and sound. Drawing on fifteen years of practice True Self: David Rosetzky Selected Works presents early portrait and longer duration videos, photographs, photo-collages and sculptures, revealing telling relationships between these aspects of his practice. It includes a major new video work Half Brother 2013, commissioned by CCP with support from Irene Sutton. The exhibition not only allows us to see the consistency of Rosetzky’s vision, but to engage with a trajectory in his video that moves from lo-fi, singular portraits that borrow advertising’s aura, through to cinematic, long-duration work.
