Altered State
2 channel DVD with stereo sound
14:00 mins


Altered State is a two-channel video that depicts a series of orchestrated performances filmed in private residences. The video shows three people singing and dancing in suburban, 1960’s Australian interiors, suggesting a situation of interrelated dislocation and isolation. The performers appear to be interacting with each other despite the separation of time and space between them.

Performers: Alfred Cauker, Fabio Chivhanda and Aurelia Nyandeng Ngor


  Installation view, Art Gallery of South Australia, Adelaide; as part of the 2008 Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art 'Handle with Care'
