 Mel O'Callaghan: Ensemble

Image1

Description

The human body is pushed to its limits in Australian artist Mel O’Callaghan’s powerful seven-minute video work Ensemble.

Exploring the idea of resilience in the face of violence, Ensemble features one man pitted against the visceral force of a jet of water.

Recently acquired by the NGV, the work is an expansive two channel video and is projected over a 10-metre-wide space. As her subject begins to walk towards the uniformed men holding the fire hose, O’Callaghan suggests that he will cross this physical and symbolic break between the frames. Through this act of struggle, triumph and then retreat, O’Callaghan encourages her audience to consider how they too may overcome their own obstacles.
