Daniel Crooks


Biography

Born Hastings, New Zealand 1973
Lives and works in Melbourne, Australia

The elasticity of Daniel Crooks’ video works takes us through multiple worlds and shifts perceptions of space and time. Crooks manipulates digital footage as though it were a physical material by using a process that he refers to as a ‘time slice’. The result of the artist’s continued fascination with the physical properties of time, his works are imbued with the rigour of mathematics and the gentle metaphysics of photography and the moving image.

Public collections include: National Gallery of Australia (Canberra), M+ / Museum of Visual Culture (Hong Kong), Australian Centre for the Moving Image (Melbourne), MONA / Museum of Old and New Art (Hobart), Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (Sydney), Art Gallery of New South Wales (Sydney), Art Gallery of Western Australia (Perth), UQ Art Museum, The University of Queensland (Brisbane), Art Gallery of South Australia (Adelaide), Chartwell Collection (Auckland); as well as private and corporate collections in Australia and internationally.

And in that studio there are two desks, two faded red kilims, a tinnie suspended from the ceiling, a couple of bikes, shelves of hardware, four computer monitors propped […]
