exhibited for ‘Planets, Mercies, & The Flow’ (惑星、慈愛、そして絶間ない流れ) at Gallery Crossing, Minokamo Japan in 2020. ‘The Flow’ is a sort of prism through which to see the rest of the works. The film is comprised of many short films, shot over the last few years but mostly in 2020. It includes films shot during the Australian Bushfires of Summer 2020 as well as films shot during the covid isolation months. An ever-changing landscape undulating through seasons and events - in the sky and in the sea. Short captures of both the macro and micro within nature - a grain of sand in the tidal pull or an air bubble rushing to the ocean surface; a wave forming and crashing, a storm passing, the moon rising, sunlight reflected on the horizon, or Impressionistic-esque clouds dissipating with dusk. All of these observations reveal the passage of time and states of matter just as clearly as the moon orbits the earth or clouds transform to precipitation.
Anatomy of: Alana Wilson
Sydney-based in her beachside studio, Alana Wilson responds to the environment she exists within and the duality of object and experience. She references modes of history and what it means to participate in the future. Here, we uncover the inherently tacit nature of Alana Wilson’s ceramic oeuvre. www.bylabo.com Creative Director: Edana Isobel Jamora Director of Photography: Don Buppapirak 1st Camera Assistant: Bonnie Chai 2nd Camera Assistant: Courtney Jones Agency: LABO
