“Uncommon Nature” embraces ideas of collective experience and the inherent multiplicity that is encapsulated within it, both online and ‘in real life’. Jonathas de Andrade, Marjolijn Dijkman, Budhaditya Chattopadhyay, Martina Amati, Rä di Martino present five different videos discussing this theme.
Referencing the multiple locations of the project, ‘Satellite’ is a screen-based public art project that simultaneously exist in multiple public locations: Melbourne and Sydney, Australia, and Auckland, New Zealand. Jonathas de Andrade is currently screening his directorial project O caseiro (The Housekeeper), 2016. It is an 8 minute HD video with sound. The project examines notions of the public space, specifically the public square, and what it means for art to occupy these spaces and connect physically disparate audiences through a collective experience.
