Presented in association with Perth Festival. Noongar artist and performer Patrick Carter uses performance, video, sound and painting to tell his stories. He first worked with The Lost Generation Project in 2007 and 2008, laying the foundations for a multi-disciplinary practice that includes elements of painting, dance, performance, and musical composition. He has developed a distinctive body of digital artworks, short films and large-scale projects exploring the challenges he faces in life and the relationships between emotion, colour and movement. SONGS from Patrick William Carter collects recent works into an evocative survey of Carter’s artistic practice. It tracks explorations in narrative, gesture and dance and the development of significant collaborations with filmmakers and musicians. It also premieres a newly commissioned film in which the element of wind, the colour black and the beat of drums signal powerful acts of transformation.
