Julian Holcroft

Concrete Video

26 May — 06 Jun 1999

Concrete Video represents works produced by Melbourne artist Julian Holcroft during the past three years. Deriving the title of the installation from the Concrete Poetry movement, Holcroft presents here a selective history of the video medium, borrowing stylistic tropes from home movies, music videos and popular cinema. Breaking down narrative time, Holcroft seeks in his video work to create unresolved narratives, inducing in the viewer a "mental confusion" of near and far, present and future, real and unreal.
