Daniel Crooks

10th October – 20th December 2013
Samstag Museum of Art

Employ­ing a com­plex range of tech­niques to inves­ti­gate new ways of rep­re­sent­ing time and space, the screen becomes a mal­leable, flu­id space in the skil­ful hands of Daniel Crooks. His alchemic process cre­ates poet­ic and mes­meris­ing inter­pre­ta­tions of the every­day world. The result­ing mov­ing images invite long con­tem­pla­tion and repeat­ed view­ing, lur­ing the spec­ta­tor into shar­ing what seems a decep­tive­ly famil­iar world, albeit one seen from a new van­tage point.

The exhi­bi­tion Daniel Crooks is co-pre­sent­ed by Sam­stag Muse­um of Art, Uni­ver­si­ty of South Aus­tralia, and 2013 Ade­laide Film Fes­ti­val. The exhi­bi­tion has been gen­er­ous­ly sup­port­ed by Arts South Australia.
