Steve Oliver: A Terrible Sound - Artist Talk & Screening
A talk and screening with artist Steve Oliver who will present his new short film A Terrible Sound, commissioned by HOME for PUSH Festival 2023.
Steve Oliver is best-known for his filmic, constructed photographic works made with material sourced from Internet searches. His associative, editorial approach to image-making draws upon the possibilities presented by vast, searchable image databases and search algorithms. Incorporating images culled from advertising, journalism, surveillance capture, social media and family snaps, the work is a literal blending of the public and the private.
Thematically, his practice circles issues of provenance, privacy, censorship, authenticity and the struggle to extract a signal from the noise of the internet. The extreme specificity of the work, rendered through prosaic subject matter generates a psychological tension; never quite narrative, nor symbolic.
The screening will be followed by an in conversation with artist Steve Oliver and Arts Writer Laura Robertson.
