John Conomos – Beyond

Posted on 5 August 2019


Artist, critic and writer John Conomos’ latest exhibition “Beyond” is coming to the Latrobe Regional Gallery. Beyond is a video exhibit mixing the space between cinema, literature, critical theory and the visual arts. Conomos’ videotapes, installations and photographs have been widely exhibited throughout Australia, Europe, the United States, Japan, Canada, and Latin America.

Beyond will feature a ‘world premiere’ showing of a video installation the “The Girl From the Sea” which is a personal essay documentary about the artist’s mother coming to Australia in the early 1940s as a teenager, arriving to work in country NSW cafes for her uncles and aunts. The film’s subjective voice-over delineates the artist’s relationship to his mother.

John Conomos’ “Beyond” will be on show at the Latrobe Regional Gallery, Morwell from August 17 and will run until October 27.
