Shaun Gladwell‘s two-part project is exhibited across two sites: SCAF features a major new commission The Lacrima Chair and UNSW Galleries presents Collection+: Shaun Gladwell.
The Lacrima Chair is comprised of several interrelated fragments: three video works, a sculpture and a book. Each component makes obvious and abstruse references to flight, distance, cultural translation and the notion of function in art. Since completing a residency at the Cité Internationale des Art in 2000, Gladwell has had an ongoing interest in French culture. The Lacrima Chair explores the cultural connection between France and Australia.
