Sam Smith video screening
View an alternative, single-channel version of ‘Cameraman’, specifically edited for a cinema environment
Artist Sam Smith explores the capacity of moving images to manipulate our sense of time and space, and to absorb viewers into fictitious realms. His Art Gallery of NSW Contemporary Project Cameraman is the first work he has shot on celluloid film in addition to video, bringing a new dimension to his exploration of cinematic conventions in an era of digital production. As an adjunct to the exhibition, where Cameraman manifests as a two-channel video installation, Smith will present limited screenings of a unique single-channel version of the work, offering audiences an alternative perspective on the narrative and aesthetic experience of Cameraman, specifically edited for a cinema environment.
