Gary Deirmendjian’s MICROVIDS are a book of 97 small video works taken over the past ten years of his practice. The videos are based on “grabs from life, on the run, enticed by the moment.” MICROVIDS was specifically created to be viewed on the internet using any smartphone device at any time. In this way, the online environment has been treated as a public art space by the artist. Deirmendjian’s MICROVIDS book is available at Dominik Mersch Gallery and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney.
Gary has also been selected as a finalist in the Hillview Sculpture Biennial, located in Sutton Forest, NSW. His site-specific installation of bleached wool vectors is set within the former Vice Regal country retreat in the Southern Highlands. The work takes form as nine threads that stretch out from a focal point above the entry door, expanding throughout the corridor and through the walls to finally re-focalise atop of a freestanding plinth. The use of white wool yarn and crisp lines is suggestive of colonial interventions upon the indigenous landscapes and existing ways of life. The Biennial is open 9-5PM daily and will continue until 27.05.18.
