Architecture Makes Us: Cinematic Visions of Sonia Leber and David Chesworth
Architecture Makes Us is a major mid-career survey of the cinematic video works of Australian artists Sonia Leber and David Chesworth.
Commissioned by Centre for Contemporary Photography (CCP), the exhibition brings together several major video works by the collaborative duo exploring craggy geographies, territorialisation, surveillance, exhausted systems and future philosophies. In this landmark survey, Leber and Chesworth offer a rich exploration of the way society is impacted by the geographical, technological and the architectural influences that surround us. These works point towards the architecture of our world in the broadest sense, examining structures both physical and invisible.
