A Centre for Contemporary Photography and NETS Victoria touring exhibition

David Rosetzky is one of Australia’s foremost exponents of video art. He creates intensely beautiful videos, photographs, photo-collages and installations that explore identity, subjectivity and interpersonal relationships. Drawing on fifteen years of practice, this is the first comprehensive survey of his work to date. Lured by high production values and beautiful subjects, the viewer becomes ensnared in Rosetzky’s stiflingly stylish worlds. The artist heightens the alienation of his subjects through devices such as repetition of dialogue and action, seemingly random replacement of characters, and passages of choreography.
