Chasing the Light1

Steve Carr in White Night Melbourne at NGV

2 July 2019

Steve Carr: 'Chasing the Light' has been announced in the 2019 White Night Melbourne program.

In a darkened gallery, six large-scale video projections explore the poetics of an explosive display and register the transformation of fire into smoke. Cameras chase the action from multiple viewpoints, placing the viewer in the middle of a beautiful and bewildering night-time adventure.

The immersive installation will take over the National Gallery of Victoria's Great Hall for three nights during White Night, 22–24 August 2019.
