15 August – 15 September 2014

Ark Galerie, Yogyakarta, Indonesia

Patrice Sharkey, Assistant Curator, MUMA, and Alia Swastika, Director, Ark Galerie, Yogyakarta, Indonesia

Ark Galerie in partnership with Monash University Museum of Art | MUMA presents So Long as You Move, an exhibition of key video artworks by four leading contemporary Australian artists that present the body in motion.

Co-curated by Ark Galerie’s Alia Swastika and MUMA’s Patrice Sharkey, the exhibition includes works by artists Daniel Crooks, Shaun Gladwell, Bianca Hester and David Rosetzky, which engage with ideas relating to spatial negotiations and the urban experience. Whether dancing, spinning, skateboarding or simply walking, each work explores ways in which the body performs in real space.

In So Long as You Move the city serves as the platform for the flow of people. Not limited by the laws of physics or the guidelines of urban infrastructure, the artists in the exhibition visualise how cities might be lived – how the body can be mobilised to reimagine the spaces we inhabit and the relationships we foster. These are new dynamics that are within reach, so long as you move.
