Daniel Crooks | Vanishing Point

3 – 27 August

Starkwhite is pleased to present Vanishing Point, by Daniel Crooks. The exhibition will premiere a new series of single channel works, which further investigate the artists’ interest in the convergence of time, trains and cinema. Concerned with multiple worlds and parallel realties, these new videos can be seen as an expansion of Crooks’ recent project Phantom Ride completed earlier this year as the recipient of the second Ian Potter Moving Image Commission.

Crooks’ complex and beautiful time structures reveal a poetic sensibility that belies the technical sophistication of their production. Treating time as a physical, malleable material his works stretch and distort reality while questioning our perception of it.

Practising across a range of media including video, photography, sculpture and installation, Daniel Crooks’ work has been widely exhibited internationally.

A graduate of the VCA School of Film and Television, Crooks’ graduate film screened at numerous international film festivals winning the City of Stuttgart Prize for Animation and an Australian Short Film Award. In 1997 He received an Australia Council research Fellowship at RMIT, Melbourne and between 2004 and 2005 undertook residencies at the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten in Amsterdam and the London studio of the Australia Council. For 3 months during 2014 Crooks was artist in residence at the FutureLab in Linz, Austria. In 2008, a major survey show, Everywhere Instantly was held at the Christchurch Art Gallery, Te Puna o Waiwhetu and in 2013 The Samstag Museum of Art, Adelaide presented a survey show including a major 5 channel installation commissioned by the The Adelaide Film Festival. 

Crooks has also held solo exhibitions at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney; The Gallery of Modern Art, Brisbane and Australian Centre for the Moving Image, Melbourne. Recent group shows include Light MovesMarking Time, Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney; 2012 Adelaide Biennial, Adelaide; Yebisu International Festival, Metropolitan Museum of Photography, Tokyo, 2011; 17th Biennale of Sydney, 2010; Cubism and Australian Art, Heide Museum of Modern Art, Melbourne 2009; Figuring Landscapes at the Tate Modern, London 2008; The Anne Landa Award at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney 2006. 

In 2011 Crooks was awarded a Jury Prize in the Signature Art Prize (Singapore Art Musuem) and in 2008 was the recipient of the inaugural Basil Sellers Art Prize.  In 2014 Crooks was awarded the Ian Potter Moving Image Commission and the work created Phantom Ride was exhibited at ACMI earlier this year.
