Jan Svenungsson - A Place on Earth & Tracking - at RMIT Faculty Gallery, Melbourne 2007

RMIT Faculty Gallery, Melbourne 2007 – a joint exhibition with Katrin von Maltzahn

In February-March 2007 JS and Katrin von Maltzahn were Artists in Residence at RMIT University School of Art in Melbourne, Australia. In February a collaborative exhibition with work brought from Berlin, was mounted at Ocular Lab, in Brunswick, Melbourne: "Being the Mirror". The second parallell exhibition was produced in Melbourne, and installed at the Faculty Gallery in March. JS showed two pieces: the painting "A Place on Earth", seen above to the right, and the 112 minute long video loop "Tracking", shown on a monitor on the opposite wall from the painting. This is one of four installation views.
