John R Neeson
Platoís Cave is John R Neesonís first video installation. †Using Techno Park Studios as a contemporary cave he has installed the cone, the sphere and the cube, as reductive archetypes, to record the procession of shadows cast onto the walls by the light entering the building. His installation pairs the time-based footage with the physical forms in the gallery to reveal a new actuality.
In the past, John R Neesonís work has used these reductive forms as models for painted works referencing the genre of nature morte painting. His most recent light based installation was seen earlier this year at Westspaceís West Wing. Other sites include the AC Institute and the stairwell of the Australia Councilís Greene Street Studio in New York, the TarraWarra Museum of Art, the Australia Councilís Cite Internationale des Arts studio in Paris, Trocodero Art Space, Conical, Herring Island, the Museum of Modern Art at Heide, Arthouse in London and ARCO in Lisbon. Techno Park Studios is the 33rd location that John has chosen.
