David Haines is a member of the NMiCA and a lecturer at Sydney College of the Arts. A retrospective of his work in collaboration with Joyce Hinterding is on exhibition at the MCA from June 26 – September 6, 2015 (Admission is Free). During August a conference on ‘Energies in the Arts‘ at MCA will coincide with this exhibition.
“Australian artists David Haines and Joyce Hinterding live and work in the Blue Mountains, NSW. Their collaborative practice incorporates experimental and traditional media to investigate Hinterding’s fascination with energetic forces and Haines’ attraction to the intersection of hallucination and the environment. Both artists are captivated by the unseen energies that surround us and seek to reveal them to audiences through work that draws upon aspects of science, the occult and philosophy.
The artists work across a range of media and processes, including sound, installation, moving image, performance, sculpture, photography and drawing. This exhibition is the first comprehensive survey of their work and includes a number of key collaborative projects, solo works by both artists, and a new commission. Curated by MCA Curator, Anna Davis.” – source MCA exhibition page
